Created and ran by Actuarial Students, for Actuarial Students

The Students’ Actuarial Society is here to encourage you to have fun and make the most of your degree, sending you into the world of work well prepared for what lies ahead.

We aim to improve your industry knowledge through the newsletters we send out and our annual actuarial conference – filled with knowledgeable speakers giving talks relevant to you.

We also hold careers talks from students and companies to give you valuable insight into the recruitment process. We also run a mock assessment centre to put your skills to the test!

We liaise with MACS to provide student-led workshops for those studying difficult courses to give extra support and knowledge from experienced individuals.

University offers opportunities to meet like-minded individuals, and SAS is no exception! We aim to provide support and help you to relax when all that studying is just a little too much.


Committees

Executive - Consisting of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, IT and all the committee directors; these members oversee and coordinate all of SAS's activities.

Conference - Offers a unique opportunity for you speak to representatives from the industry; listen to talks from people at all stages of their career, and learn about some of the 'hot topics' currently in the public eye.

Competition - We hold an annual competition for all Actuarial Science students. Open to all year groups, the Students' Actuarial Society competition is a great opportunity to put skills learnt in the lecture theatre to use.

Careers - Runs regular events targeted at improving your core skills - useful in applying for internships and graduate roles. We hold psychometric test sessions and CV skills sessions amongst others, and organise seminars hosted by actuarial employers, providing you with insight and valuable information to help you to find actuarial positions.

Education - Working in conjunction with Heriot Watt's School of Mathematical and Computer Science, we provide revision sessions and mock exams for the more difficult subjects that you may encounter during your time at university. These sessions will be run by students rather than lecturers, giving an alternative perspective on challenging aspects of the course.

Socials - The Social committee arranges opportunities for you to take a break, let your hair down and get to know each other. We also organise social events with companies which enables students to meet actuaries and actuarial trainees in an informal setting.
