We provide various learning materials (rental of textbooks, purchase of video lectures) for current students who are aiming to acquire an actuary qualification exam at home and abroad. We provide tuition assistance for each exam if students additionally pass the US Actuary Qualification Examination. We also support the cost of video lectures for actuary study groups.
