Education 17/18

Responsible for all the education matters of SAS. This includes the organisation of revision sessions and lab workshops mainly aimed at the 2nd and 3rd year Actuarial Science students. Our aim is to provide students with extra questions and assistance, as well as give them the opportunity to better understand the content of some of the most difficult courses. All the sessions are organised with the assistance and guidance of the relevant lecturers to ensure that the students are getting the most out of them.

This is aimed at Year 3 students who are currently taking Statistics Models A.
