    I'm looking at university courses and came across PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) and thought it looked interesting.
    My career goal is to become an actuary? I know you can do degrees in maths, economics, chem, physics or stats or at least a mathematically based subject. But what about PPE? Would it be a hinderance to achieving my goal or just as useful as doing maths or economics?

    Degree title is not the issue, the maths content is. The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries says "we have compiled a list of mathematical subjects which you should have an understanding of in order to qualify as an actuary" - check the degree content of the PPE degree you're looking at, does it cover these subjects? https://www.actuaries.org.uk/documen...matics-subject
