About us

The objective of FASS is to create an environment for students and newly qualified actuaries in Scotland to support their professional development and enhance their knowledge of current actuarial topics. FASS also creates extensive networking opportunities for our members. We achieve this through:

  • Arranging educational events providing skills and information at the appropriate levels for professional development
  • Events that allow professionals to meet and socialise in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
  • Providing representation at Student Consultative Forum (SCF) meetings to ensure the collective views of FASS members are heard
  • Acting as an avenue to liaise with other actuarial societies to ensure a breadth of coverage in Scotland and promoting the profession to University students.

SAS

SAS (Students' Actuarial Society) is a society for Heriot Watt University students who are interested in becoming Actuaries. It is mostly made up of Actuarial Science students but students of other subjects are welcome to join.
Much like FASS, they run networking events and talks to help educate students on a variety of topics. FASS has a strong linkage with SAS and the SAS President sits on the FASS Executive Committee.
