A current final year student of BSc Actuarial Science and Risk Management, Jill Copes, completed her compulsory placement year in Willis Towers Watson in Dublin where she worked on the Retirement Consultancy team in 2018/19.
“The Actuarial Science and Risk Management degree at QUB is very applied and I found that was a great advantage going into my placement year. Thanks to the QUB Placement Office the application process was very smooth and straightforward. I was able to apply what I had learned on the course while building on my industry knowledge and softer skills. Placement gives you a real feel for what career you might want to pursue after completing your degree. I was offered a graduate place in the WTW Retirement Consultancy team which I accepted, so I was able to focus on final year exams without the added stress of searching for a job. The placement year has by far been my favourite part of the actuarial course at QUB, and I am now looking forward to my future at WTW”
