About us

"Equipping the Actuaries of Tomorrow"

LSESU Actuarial Society is one of the largest actuarial student societies in the UK. It was founded with a strong initiative to promote understanding of this highly respectable yet unheard profession.

As the only LSESU society that offers a comprehensive analysis of current issues surrounding insurance, pensions and investment from an actuarial point of view, we have established ourselves in LSE with over 200 members.

We provide a wide range of events which cover three major areas: Careers, Socials and Skills. We have organised talks to raise commercial awareness among members about pensions and insurance, exploring the way actuaries respond to challenges in this changing world with endless possibilities.

There are various opportunities to ask seniors and alumni about their experiences working in actuarial placements and providing members advice about internships is also one of the great services the society can offer. We also prepared some social activities for the members which you definitely do not want to miss out.

We are committed to providing our members with memorable experiences and insights about Actuarial Science, one of the most rewarding careers, and equipping the actuaries of tomorrow.

If you are interested to pursue a career in actuarial science or any statistics-related field, joining our society will provide you with the relevant skills and knowledge needed for your future career path.
