There are also apprenticeship schemes for our Fellowship qualification too – so if you want to become a fully qualified actuary and don’t want to go to university then there is the opportunity to leave school and get started on your exams. You can find employers who would be interested in offering you a position in our Directory of Employers.

What do you need?

Well most employers will look for you to have good GCSE’s with grades above C – in particular Maths and English. For some employers it would also be a requirement that you have A-levels - around 260/280 UCAS points. It’s important to make sure you investigate each employer’s requirements on their website as they will vary!
