Re: Part-time local courses in Mathematical subjects
1) why do you want to study actuarial?
2) do you know what it is really about?
3) the quantitative (or computational) finance/(whatever other universities call it, they are pretty much the same), IMO is quite interesting.
it is a main degree, though i have to say, not many universities offer this side of finance as undergraduate studies, i don't know much about local uni so you have to check it out yourself. i think MMU offers something called financial engineering of something like that, which is almost the same i believe. i've seen it being offered as masters in some universities
4) statistics? just think about things you learn in for spm/pre-u, but on a much harder scale. in real world, we deal with data, and we need to analyse them (it's totally not easy though the idea is simple). i don't study real statistics, i only study the statistics for actuarial students, which is different
PS: you can pm me too
i'm cynical, but for the right reasons (i think)
