If you love numbers and think you have what it takes to be an actuary then we have an offer for you! Old Mutual offers Actuarial Science bursaries to study at the University of Cape Town or Stellenbosch University.

The Actuarial Bursary Programme offers you and other young South Africans the opportunity to develop an actuarial care. You get support from the day you matriculate, throughout your actuarial studies to qualification and beyond.
