The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) is working with the Southampton Data Science Academy (SDSA) to present a certificate in data science jointly accredited by the Web Science Institute at the University of Southampton.

Initiated in response to demand from IFoA members, the Certificate is an introduction to the concepts, tools and techniques used in data science and their relevance within an actuarial context.

The Data Science Certificate is a part-time, online course which will require approximately 10 hours of study per week, across an eight-week period, with an additional two weeks to complete the final assignment. There’s no requirement for those undertaking the course to have any minimum programming skills.

Data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence will irrevocably impact the lifecycle of insurance.

In a drive to ensure everyone in the Lloyd’s marketplace can understand and use these concepts and tools, Lloyd's is partnering with the Southampton Data Science Academy to offer data science and / or artificial intelligence education for five learning cohorts.
