Metropolitan, the third-largest life insurer in South Africa, is offering bursaries to ensure that highly self-motivated achievers are given the opportunity to realise their career ambitions in life insurance. Metropolitan provides market-leading actuarial bursaries to students studying towards a degree in actuarial science.
The programme considers applications for bursaries (for a maximum period of four years) from students who intend following or who are already following an appropriate Bachelor degree with a view to an actuarial career.
Value of bursary
The annual amount of the bursary is equal to the total cost of registration and tuition fees and levies; universities residence fees, or the equivalent if the student boards privately (students choosing to board privately must obtain Metropolitan’s approval); and a textbook and incidental expenses allowance. In addition, the student can qualify during his/her study course for incentive payments for outstanding achievement in specific subjects selected by Metropolitan.
Metropolitan is usually prepared to employ and remunerate the bursars during the summer holidays at the Metropolitan Head Office in Cape Town, to enable the student to gain practical experience.
