Mathematics

**The study of maths plays an important, yet sometimes overlooked, part in society and modern life. Its application can be found anywhere from telecommunications, retail and engineering to social media and search engine algorithms.**

In its essence, Mathematics is about the solving of problems. Studying this course at Newman University sees you build on your previous study of the subject, expanding and deepening your mathematical knowledge and skills, developing a respect for the beauty of mathematics. There are analytical and statistical aspects of Mathematics which will be developed during the course of your study, aiding skills which will be called upon in professional settings. As the use of ‘big data’ proliferates in society this degree provides you with the skills and expertise to manipulate data and use mathematical tools to generate meaningful information. You will learn the various ways in which Mathematics is applied to real life situations and be introduced to mathematical modelling, which aids the practical aspect of your course.

Statistical thinking is emphasised, with no previous knowledge assumed; the ability to apply statistics to massive datasets is a relevant skill to have and is increasingly an asset desired by employers, who are looking to recruit Mathematics graduates. For **aspiring maths teachers**, there is the option within this degree to opt-in to a teacher training pathway to obtain recommendation for qualified teacher status **(please note that the allocation of numbers of places on this opt-in from the DfE should be confirmed by July/August 2019)**. Please check with the Admissions department admissions@newman.ac.uk for any additional entry requirements necessary to be able to progress onto the opt-in route to recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status

**SPECIAL FEATURES**
- You will be asked to solve problems, based on real life scenarios and in areas of your own choosing, which forms an extensive final year project. You will learn and understand software systems that are industry-standard to support your problem solving.

- You will undertake a work placement in a mathematical related role, which contributes towards your final degree classification.

- You are taught in small groups, facilitating workshop discussion and developing communication skills used in both academic and professional environments.

- The course has also been designed to integrate with the Mathematics degree at Newman University in Wichita, USA. You can study for a semester at our partner university, adding an international dimension to the degree. There are no additional course fees for the international part, but you are responsible for travel, accommodation and subsistence costs.

**EMPLOYABILITY**
Mathematics graduates are extremely well equipped for an ever-changing world and job marketplace. Due to their analytical and statistical skills, graduates are suited to most industries. The workshop-style teaching at Newman University will help you to develop strong communication skills, which are especially useful in roles where mathematical subject matter needs to be explained to non-mathematicians.

What are graduates doing after six months?

This is what graduates told us they were doing (and earning), shortly after completing their course. We've crunched the numbers to show you if these immediate prospects are high, medium or low, compared to those studying this subject/s at other universities.

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.

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?
