A bonus of this degree is that you’ll have the opportunity to transfer onto the MMath degree at the end of your second year leading to a higher qualification.

Deepen your understanding of pure and applied maths and statistics with our four-year mathematics degree. With a broad range of topics available to study, this allows you to shape your degree to your own interests and career aspirations, and is ideal if you want to go onto postgraduate study. You’ll be taught in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere, by staff with doctoral research degrees, from mathematically diverse backgrounds. Get the benefit from small intimate class sizes, giving you regular opportunities for help and support from your tutors.

On the Mathematics degree you study six mathematics modules in each year of your studies. Each module contains 200 hours of work and during the first year about 70 hours of this is timetabled class contact. Timetabled sessions are periods in the week where you attend and study with a member of staff present. These sessions can take various formats; a variety of these are used throughout your studies.

The main difference between studying at school and at university is that degree level studies transfer you from dependent learning, being told how to do things, to independent learning, being given a body of information and working out for yourself how to apply it. What this means in a mathematics degree is that you learn to discover mathematical concepts and their uses for yourself.

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.

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?
