FASS Events 18/19

FASS (Faculty of Actuaries Students’ Society) is a society for those studying actuarial exams who work in the Edinburgh region. It is mostly made up of trainee actuaries working in industry across a large variety of companies.

Much like SAS, they run networking events and talks to help educate students on a variety of topics. SAS has a strong linkage with FASS and the SAS President sits on the FASS Executive Committee.

For more information about FASS visit their website http://www.fass-online.co.uk. To attend any FASS event you must be a FASS member. Currently the cost for students to become a FASS member is £8 per year (academic year 18/19).

During the initial sign-up events for SAS in the first couple of weeks you can sign up to FASS through us. If you wish to join after this period you will need to sign up using their website.

FASS pool and pizza night

Come along to the first FASS social of this semester. Eat pizza, play pool, have a drink (or 10) and get to know trainee actuaries from all over Edinburgh.

All FASS members are welcome, and we highly recommend that everyone who has one brings their student card with them to benefit from the promotional pricing.



FASS-mas Ice Skating & Cocktails

It’s that time of year again, so let’s get tipsy and take to the ice – every aspiring actuary’s passions realised, right?!

Come join us for a night of ice skating and cocktails at St Andrew Square. After our ice skating slot at 18:30, we will be heading to Nightcap on York Place for some cheeky, yet festive, cocktails.

Please remember to bring your student card, if you have it. Tickets for this can be booked on our website, as with any of our events.

Refreshments from 5:30pm with event starting at 6pm.
