Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The UK still doesn’t have as many maths teachers as we’d like, so anyone wanting to take maths and then go into teaching will be welcome. In fact, there’s felt to be a general lack of maths skills in the population at large, so this is one subject where there's demand for graduate skills. With all that training in handling figures, it's hardly surprising that a lot of maths graduates go into well-paid jobs in the IT or finance industries, and last year, a maths graduate in London could expect a very respectable average starting salary of £27k. But for research jobs, you'll want a doctorate – and a really good maths doctorate will get you all sorts of interest from academia and finance – and might secure salaries to match.
