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

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
More than 2,000 students graduated with a degree in finance in 2012, but recent times have been difficult for the finance industry. As things recover, however, we'd expect the statistics to improve, and as so many – over half of the employed graduates from 2012 - go into finance, it's not surprising that London is by far the most common location for graduates from the subject to go into work, although Scotland and the North West also take quite a few graduates. It's also common for finance graduates to go into jobs such as accountancy, which require you to take more training and gain professional qualifications – finance graduates who take further study are more likely to be studying accountancy than finance.
