On Thursday 20th June, 18 of our students were conferred with their BSc Risk and Actuarial Science Degree. The class of 2019 is the second group of students to have graduated from the programme since it commenced in 2014. The students and their families attended the morning graduation ceremony followed by a reception in the Western Gateway Building, attended by Professor Sarah Culloty, Head of College of SEFS, Professor Finbarr O'Sullivan, Head of School of Mathematical Sciences, along with academic colleagues and friends.
Many of the students are pursuing additional postgraduate studies, with some having secured graduate positions both in Ireland and the UK.

Welcome from Head of School
Mathematics is the language of Science. The great George Boole, whose bicentenary occurred in 2015, was the first Professor of Mathematics at this University. The School of Mathematical Sciences at UCC is made up of Departments of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics. It is part of the College of Science, Engineering and Food Science.
The academic mission of the School reaches across the University, its research institutions and affiliated Medical and Dental Hospitals. On the teaching side, we maintain an extensive curriculum serving the needs of a diverse student population — more than 2,750 students. Our deliveries include accredited undergraduate and post-graduate programmes in Actuarial Science. The School has a tradition of community outreach particularly focused on stimulating interest in Mathematics among pre-University students. The Boole2School (B2S) project is a recent development in this area.
The School is committed to the realisation of excellence in research. The themes and areas of strength span a range of areas within the broad fields of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics. Some of the research is pure and theoretical while other work is more application and data analytic in nature.
