Warsaw Actuarial Summer School


As it has been assumed and realised for the last twenty eight years, the aim of the School is to fill a gap in the Continuing Education process, which is recognized as crucial for keeping high professional standards in most of western countries with well-developed insurance markets, and well-established actuarial profession. Thus the programme of the School is mainly dedicated to persons who have already entered the profession, or at least have passed the basic education stage at WASS or elsewhere. Every year the selection of topics is different.

The preliminary programme of the 29th edition is composed of three selected subjects.
The lectures are in Polish (II) and in English (I and III). (Programme in PDF)


We expect that persons wishing to participate are employed in actuarial, statistical or analytical departments of insurance firms and institutions of the insurance market and pension system, or at least have a basic actuarial knowledge (based on good mathematical background) and wish to acquire more specialised skills demanded when looking for a job in the insurance industry. Academic teachers interested in actuarial sciences are welcome, too. 


29th Warsaw Actuarial Summer School will take place at the Faculty of Modern Languages (due to renovation of the main building of the Faculty of Economic Sciences), University of Warsaw, in the period of 10-14 September 2018.
