Heriot-Watt University has been around since 1821, it is one of the United Kingdom’s top leading universities for business and industry. Heriot-Watt University is well known for its amazing research staff members and having smart, well educated graduates who specialize in fields such as science, engineering, and even business. Gareth Henry, a 2001 graduate from Heriot-Watt University decided to start a special Scholarship program for a small select few of Heriot-Watt University students who are in need of financial help. “I am giving out one call per term ( three times a year) if needed, and I’ll also be giving them advice on getting a job and career advice” says Gareth Henry. I hope though this scholarship program the students can see what they can achieve though hard work and studying Actuarial Sciences.”

Currently Gareth Henry lives in New York City where he used to work in senior roles in investor relations for several years. He praises the connection of the Actuarial Maths offering at the Heriot Watt, especially for those who are wanting to work in the financial industry. Gareth Henry believes that the Heriot Watt’s program’s scholastic processes, well put together modeling lessons will be very helpful in the future in addition to understanding Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, robot advisory, and quantitative investing.

The Actuarial Science degree offered af Heriot-Watt university is one of the few courses that are accredited by the United Kingdom actuarial profession. If a student does well on the courses they can get exemptions from several professional exams, this gives graduates an advantage. Graduates who qualify as UK actuaries can possibly get credit from the Society of Actuaries. it is truly a great course to take for people interested in a career in finance.

The person chosen for this Scholarship program must be enrolled in a Statistics and Actuarial Mathematics course, be in need of help and be a resident in the UK.
