Just a speculative question. I am aiming to get into actuarial work when I graduate, however will unlikely be able to get an internship in that area. Which area of internships: Business analyst or Accountancy internships would be more relevant to helping me later get a job in the actuarial field?

It really doesn't matter. Get an internship first, then worry about its relevance to the field you want to get into. The actuarial profession is getting more and more competitive thanks to more mathematically able graduates each year, but if you've got something to set you apart (eg experience in audit) then it might give you an edge. It depends on how you sell yourself once you get the internship, not the internship itself.
