Two years since its inception, the CAS Student Central Program now reaches more than 4,000 student members from over 400 universities worldwide! The growth of the program can be attributed to the wide range of benefits and resources made available to support you on your actuarial career path. We’ve highlighted a few of the key resources below, and we invite you to share your recommendations on additional materials or benefits that you’d like to see made available to Student Central members in the future!
CAS Student Central teamed up with The Infinite Actuary to provide exclusive access to free practice exams on P and FM, beyond those already offered on The Infinite Actuary website. Each problem on these full length sample exams offers a video solution to ensure that students have a strong understanding of the material. Typically these exams are only available to students through the purchase of an Online Seminar through The Infinite Actuary, however you can access this FREE resource on the CAS Student Central website.
Each semester we offer a webinar exclusively for actuarial students. The webinars are a great way for you to get advice on the actuarial profession and get a better understanding of the tools and concepts that actuaries use in their day-to-day work. If you haven’t been able to attend a Student Central webinar yet, or want to go back and revisit a webinar topic you enjoyed, you can access recordings of all of the webinars in the Student Central Online Community.
You can also download past webinars through the links provided below:
- The Entry Level Job Market for Actuaries
