Best Bachelor of Science Degrees in Mathematics in Netherlands 2017. Whether it is your cell phone, the security details for your bank card, the supply of products to shops, image processing in the medical field or a digital prototype for a car: none of these would exist without mathematics. You might not often even give it a thought, but mathematics is an essential part of our modern world. That is why there is also constant demand for versatile and widely deployable mathematicians, people who enjoy the challenge of solving problems and designing new products. Is being involved in creating the world of today and tomorrow something that appeals to you? Do you enjoy getting your teeth into a problem and do keep on searching for a solution until something has been solved? If so, our program in Applied Mathematics is the one for you. What is Applied Mathematics? Applied mathematics is a specific form of mathematics. It involves applying mathematical models in order to map out the mathematical core of a practical problem. With applied mathematics, you can solve problems that at first may not even appear to be mathematical in nature. This might be, for example, a practical problem that exists in industry or in (governmental) institutions. As a mathematical problem sometimes requires the investigation and researching of mathematics at a more fundamental level, you may well have to undertake in-depth study as an applied mathematician. And as you often collaborate with specialists from other fields, you will also need the ability to look beyond your own specialization. That is what makes applied mathematics so fascinating. Mathematical model Applied mathematicians produce a model of a problem and then use that model to carry out calculations in order to arrive at a solution. Solving a problem using a mathematical model involves 3 elements: Modeling: you produce a mathematical model for a practical problem. To do this, you need knowledge of mathematics and of the field from which the problem arises. It is therefore often the case that you as the mathematician work together with a specialist from the field in which the problem arises. Solving: if the mathematical problem is simple, the field specialist will solve the problem alone. If it is more complex, you as an applied mathematician work together with the field specialist. Retranslation of the solution to the original problem: you convert the solution of the mathematical problem according to the practical problem, so that specialists from the other field are able to use it.

If so, Actuarial Science is definitely the programme for you, and Amsterdam is definitely the city for you! Actuarial Science at the University of Amsterdam: Is it for you? Mathematics in one of your favorite subjects. You study mathematics at the highest possible level and achieve good grades for it. You see yourself working as an actuary or risk manager for an insurance company, consultancy, pension fund or another financial or government institution. You have an affinity for numbers as well as the societal reality behind them, you are a good abstract thinker and you have strong analytical skills. You achieve high marks in English. You are capable of working independently: you know how to use a library. Initiative and inquisitiveness are also of great value. Part-time study Actuarial Science cannot be studied part-time. Your studies and the labour market Actuarial Science Upon completion of the Bachelor's programme, you are not yet an actuary. You must first complete the Master's programme in Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance. In order to register with the Actuarial Association, you must then complete one more professional post-'doctoraal' programme. One you've completed this, the world is your oyster! Actuarial careers Actuaries have excellent prospects on the labour market. Actuaries are essential for conducting risk management at financial institutions, and the Actuarial Science programme constantly anticipates future developments and societal needs. For example, at the moment, there is a great deal of demand for financially and economically trained actuaries. Actuaries can work for: insurance companies pension funds banks consultancies the Dutch Central Bank (the regulatory authority), other financial institutions and organisations government bodies [-]
