Subject

Mathematics

With an extra year of integrated study at foundation level, this course opens up opportunities to explore mathematics if you don't hold the required A-level or equivalent qualifications, if you want to change career or are returning to study.

The foundation year gives you the support, knowledge and skills you need. Developed in collaboration with industry experts, our course is a blend of theory and real-world practice. With a focus on employability, you'll gain knowledge and skills that are sought after by employers, in a supportive, small-group environment.

You will learn how to understand technical maths and communicate it in a clear way, while also developing strong presentation skills. You'll apply mathematics and statistics meaningfully in a wide range of contexts using sophisticated software such as Maple, MATLAB, SPSS, Lindo, R and SAS. Alongside this, you will use your knowledge in problem-solving scenarios, both independently and as part of a team.

If you achieve the required standard in year 2, you can progress to the third year of the Mathematics MMath or Mathematics for Data Science MMath and study towards a masters level qualification.

This new course is in the final stages of development and small changes may occur. Check back for the most up-to-date information.

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?
