Royal Statistical Society (RSS) accreditation
Our programmes G1G3 MSci in Mathematics with Statistics and GG31 BSc Mathematics and Statistics are accredited by the Royal Statistical Society. This means that final-year students are eligible for free membership of the RSS. In addition, this entitles graduates who achieve a first- or second-class degree to apply for RSS Graduate Statistician status. GG31 graduates must produce a degree transcript to show statistics content of 50% in the final year and 50% overall.
Exemptions from professional examinations
Taking certain modules or programmes entitles you to exemptions from some professional examinations in actuarial science or accountancy.
Exemption Recognition Agreement for CT3 – Probability and Mathematical Statistics
The Actuarial Profession has agreed to award exemption from CT3 to students who achieve an average examination mark of 60% or higher on the three modules:
- MTH5120 Statistical Modelling I

It is possible to take these three modules in all our degree programmes, although in some cases you must select your options appropriately.
This agreement first takes effect for students taking these modules in the academic year 2011/12.
