    I have seen a lot of people say that for someone who wants to go into the finance sector that Maths is better as it keeps your options open.

    So my question is, can you not do just as much with an Actuarial Science dehree in the finance sector? What jobs can you expect with it (except from becoming an Actuary). And what if it does "limit" your options, why is that?

    Investment banking and investment management, accountancy, commercial banking, insurance, financial analysis, management, computing and teaching.

    The only good thing about doing an Actuarial Sciences degree is that you do not have to take the professional exams. However, the Maths degree is far more flexible, and you can choose to do some actuarial mathematics (as part of your optional modules).
