Course summary

If you have enjoyed studying mathematics at A level (or equivalent) and are interested in the applications of statistics to the social sciences, business and finance, then this could be the programme for you.

Actuarial science applies mathematical skills to the social sciences to solve important problems for insurance, government, commerce, industry and academic researchers.

The BSc Actuarial Science programme has a heavy mathematical and statistical component. It is accredited by the Institute of Actuaries and courses taken as part of the degree can lead to exemptions. It is also accredited by The Royal Statistical Society, providing graduates with the status of Graduate Statistician, a grade of professional membership of the society.

Many students arrange internships in actuarial and financial firms or placement companies with help from LSE Careers or the Department of Statistics. Recent graduates from the programme have gone on to work in the areas of insurance (life and general), as well as banking, finance and statistics.

Top 5 sectors our students work in:

  • Financial service activities
  • Insurance and pensions
  • Legal and accounting activities
  • Management consultancy activities
  • Computer programming and consultancy
