Subject

Mathematics

Overview
Many recent discoveries are due to the ingenuity of mathematicians, from the invention of the internet to the creation of Facebook to GCHQ operations that save thousands of lives. This mathematics degree will train you to study advanced areas of mathematics and apply them to diverse problems. You'll gain experience in problem solving with an emphasis on industry applications and graduate with the skills and knowledge to advance into diverse careers such as finance and insurance, data science, education, and computing.

Why study BSc/MMath Mathematics at Middlesex University?
This specialist degree develops vital communication skills in a variety of forms (written, web-based, presentation and group working), ensuring you can explain complex maths to a range of audiences. It will also ensure that when you graduate you do so with an excellent grounding in a range of areas of mathematics, and with the skills and competencies to work in the numerous areas where mathematics is applied or into mathematics research.

You will study the broad spectrum of pure maths (algebra, calculus, geometry and logic) and the application of these to a number of areas. Key modules like Problem Solving Methods will help you to develop your ability to solve complex mathematical problems and relate theory to practice. A weekly Engaging in Mathematics session allows you to experience maths in its various forms in an informal setting. Sessions include external speakers, activity sessions, and employability skills development.

This degree is the perfect training for a diversity of careers. In addition to the skills developed as a mathematician employers require graduates with expert communication skills and that's why our course offers a unique model of communications training: 'Communicating Mathematics' trains you to convey complex mathematical language to a number of different audiences in a way that is accessible.

If you apply for our four-year MMath course (which offers advanced study options in disciplines such as financial maths and high level pure maths) you will gain a masters qualification when you successfully complete your undergraduate degree. And, if you apply in Year 1, you can receive funding to cover your postgraduate course fees.

Course highlights

The option to take a year-long placement between your second and third years will enhance your employability
We have designed our degrees to be flexible, allowing you to join the MMath from the BSc Mathematics at any time up to the end of your second year as long as you achieve high enough grades

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.

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?
