Becoming an actuary takes a lot of hard work. That's why at Sun Life, we've developed a supportive environment designed to give aspiring actuaries the resources they need. A cornerstone of your development as an actuary, our 18 to 24-month actuarial student program is tailored to help you pass the actuarial exams and prepare you for your new career.


You'll receive time off from work to study, financial incentives for passing exams and exam fee reimbursement. In addition, you will participate in a program that will provide you with the opportunity to rotate among different areas within Sun Life (e.g., Group Benefits, Individual Insurance, Specialty Products, Investments, Asset and Liability Management, and Corporate Actuarial and Reinsurance).

You'll gain exposure to different fields of actuarial work and find the area that's most interesting – and most suited – to you. And you'll be able to apply the knowledge you gain from your studies to current actuarial issues in your work. The majority of rotations occur within the same location, but there are occasionally opportunities to rotate to other locations in Canada, the U.S., or internationally. You'll also have the opportunity to meet other actuarial students and actuaries at Sun Life through a variety of social events.

Program internship opportunities

We offer paid summer internships for qualified students who are between their junior and senior year at our Wellesley Hills, MA office. The summer internship is a 10-week program, which begins the first week of June. But it's not all work. We also offer students the opportunity to participate in social activities, as well as in learning and professional development events.
