Leicester Actuarial Science Society

Founded in 2015, the aim of Leicester Actuarial Science Society (LASS) is to give students a better feel for what life as a student actuary might be like across a range of different environments

This is to ensure that students are:

  • competitive in the actuarial jobs market and 
  • encouraged to pursue successful careers once they have secured a trainee position.

LASS aims to:

  • give students access and exposure to a range of potential employers to
    • give students a better understanding of what an actuarial career involves, and to
    • increase potential employers' awareness of what actuarial students have to offer
  • provide actuarial students at different stages in their careers with opportunities to compare experiences
  • facilitate contact between actuarial students and actuarial science educators in an informal setting
  • create opportunities for actuaries and actuarial students in the region to develop professionally
  • provide a forum for thought leadership in actuarial science within the East Midlands and to raise the profile of Leicester actuarial science courses in current research.

To date the Leicester society has been primarily based around Leicester University, but the Committee is now keen to broaden the scope of the society

It is keen to engage with all IFoA members at all levels of membership in the Leicester area, as well as actuarial students at the university.
