Student actuaries

We're built on talent. And we know that to help our talent become the best they can possibly be they need support. Because we're committed to continuing personal and career development, we offer our student actuaries a package that's designed to help them with everything they need to develop their career and achieve nationally recognised, professional qualifications.


Right from the start, you'll have your very own mentor. Usually a qualified actuary or senior student, they'll provide you with support and guidance while you're studying. So if you have any study-related questions or are looking for exam choice advice, you can turn to them - they'll know exactly what you're going through as they've been in your shoes.

Financial support

We also look after you financially. We'll give you funding, which will vary according to the exam or study package and include the cost of any residential courses. And, on top of this, we'll pay for any reasonable additional travel or accommodation costs.

Study time

Having time to study is important, so we're as flexible as possible when it comes to taking time off. We'll give you a generous amount of study leave which will allow you to really concentrate on preparing for your exams.


Because we want to meet your growing aspirations and because we know financial rewards play a huge role in that, we benchmark our student salaries to three stages: entry, completion of the CT series and qualification. Following each set of exam results, we'll review your salary to make sure it's relative to the market – and your hard work.
