What our alumni say
Class of 2022
PhD Student in Statistics under the Faculty of Science of CUHK
I had the privilege of being taught by experienced scholars and emerging stars in actuarial science and insurance. Not only did I stay up to date on the latest academic advancements, but my interaction with them also heightened my motivation for further studies. ASI provides aspiring actuarial professionals with a robust mathematical foundation and offers valuable insights into the practical applications of insurance. I am now pursuing a PhD to delve deeper into the field. My current research focuses on a novel approach to actuarial pricing, which I hope will help shape the future of actuarial science.

Class of 2022
Actuarial Intern, Asia Insurance Company Limited
Transitioning from one industry to another can be both exciting and daunting. Thanks to the ASI’s admission scholarship, I was able to flourish in a one-year professional programme that provided me with the essential tools and knowledge to make the transformation from a physiotherapist to an actuary, without having to worry too much about time and living expenses. During my studies, I was fortunate enough to receive a second scholarship, which was exclusively available to local students. However, even more valuable than the scholarship itself was the opportunity to meet the sponsor, who offered me a job immediately after graduation. Now, I am prepared to embark on my new career, and I have full confidence that I will thrive.
Class of 2022
Actuarial Intern at Marketing Actuarial Department, Manulife
My amazing year in the ASI programme helped me grow personally and professionally. The curriculum, meticulously aligned with the Society of Actuaries examinations, enabled me to acquire the essential knowledge and skills required for success. The ASI’s career services were equally excellent. We visited actuarial and insurance-related firms and interacted with industry executives, gaining valuable insights and participating in on-the-spot internship interviews. I was fortunate to secure a position and set my career in motion. I would wholeheartedly recommend this programme to anyone seeking an accelerated journey in the actuarial field. It’s a place where time flies, and knowledge flourishes.
