Mathematics

**Why study this course?**

If you love mathematics but have missed out on formal qualifications, this course will help you develop knowledge and skills in your areas of interest. You’ll enhance your problem-solving, mathematical reasoning, statistics, research and IT skills. In the most recent (2015-16) Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months.

**More about this course**

This course gives you the chance to build on the areas of mathematical science that you’re interested in by offering a wide variety of optional modules. Choose from topics such as financial mathematics, coding theory, and algebra and analysis.

You’ll gain a broad knowledge of the fundamentals of mathematics, as well as the skills to apply your knowledge to a variety of contexts. You’ll develop problem-solving skills, IT proficiency and research techniques, as well as learning about the ways maths might be used in the workplace.

**What our students say**

“I have decided to do this course because I love mathematics and this course has given me the opportunity to deepen this love. I am able to study modules that I enjoy with other students who share the same interests as me. There are friendly teachers, well-equipped labs and the library staff are very helpful and encourage me to explore more fields of mathematics.”

“At London Met I don’t feel as though I only study mathematics, I feel like I’m part of a community of people who share the passion I feel for the subject and the drive to do well. If I could give any advice to anyone thinking of joining the mathematics subject area at London Met it would be stop thinking and secure your place - you will never look back.”

Assessment methods

You'll be assessed through a variety of methods such as coursework, problem-solving case studies, essays, exams, group work in the form of oral presentation and written reports, an individual portfolio and a final dissertation.

Top job areas of graduates

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Want to feel needed? This is one of the most flexible degrees of all and with so much of modern work being based on data, there are options everywhere for maths graduates. 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. And we're always short of teachers in maths, so that is an excellent option for anyone wanting to help the next generation. And if you want a research job, 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 some of the highest salaries going for new leavers from university.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
