Course materials Actuarial Models 1

This page will provide online access to the course materials (lecture notes, example sheets, etc.) for the unit Actuarial Models 1. For any questions please contact the lecturer Ronnie Loeffen by e-mail or drop by my office (e.g. during my office hour, Monday 3.30-4.30pm) or approach after the lecture.

Lecture notes

The lecture notes will be updated throughout the semester. Note that any appendices appearing in the lecture notes are not `exam-material'.


The coursework will consist of two pieces of homework to be handed in. At the moment, the two deadlines are scheduled as follows: Tuesday November 7 and Tuesday December 5. Each coursework will be provided well in advance of the corresponding deadline. Each part counts as 1/2 for the total coursework mark and the total coursework mark counts for 10% of the final mark. Note that the coursework for level 6 will be an extended version of the coursework for level 3.

Example Sheets


Tutorials will provide an opportunity for students' work to be discussed and provide feedback on their understanding. Naturally, the coursework also provides an opportunity for students to receive feedback. Students can also get feedback on their understanding directly from the lecturer, for example during the lecturer's office hour.


The slides with the list of important points can be found on Blackboard.
