Career opportunities

Studying mathematics at degree level will arm you with a range of skills and knowledge greatly valued across many professions. Crucially, a mathematics degree is excellent preparation for any area of employment requiring people who are able to think clearly and logically.

You can enter any number of employment areas - some of the more common areas include finance, industry, computing (including operational research), management, administration, statistics, and teaching (schools and colleges) - or you might progress into postgraduate study. Taking finance as an example, you could become among the number of our graduates who have gone on to work for major firms such as KPMG, Goldman Sachs, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte, Barclays and Deutsche Bank.

All of our undergraduate students have affiliate membership of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications , and the Department of Mathematics places great emphasis on careers, holding a number of events throughout the year.

These include talks, workshops and networking sessions, and are attended by a large number of international graduate recruiters. They present a fantastic opportunity to network with a number of graduate employers early in your academic career.
