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.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

The business and research sectors worry that the UK hasn't got enough people with good statistics skills, and as stats are at the heart of so much of the economy, and we only have a few hundred graduates a year in the discipline, this type of degree can be very useful and versatile. More than half of statisticians who are working following graduation go to work in finance, and they're far more likely to be working in London than most other graduates. And who can blame them – statistics graduates starting work in London were earning an average of over £28k just six months after leaving university. There is also demand from the Scottish finance sector in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Last year, statisticians starting work in Scotland were earning nearly £26k on average after six months – less than in London, but perhaps better off overall than their counterparts south of the border when you factor in lower living costs.
