Subject

Mathematics

Mathematics has always been a particular strength of Teacher Education at our University. You will join a community of mathematic students taking a range of modules within a lively, imaginative context.

Most of our graduates have secured teaching jobs before the course is completed, with many receiving offers of employment from schools where they’re completing their school experience.

This course offers you a route into a subject-based teaching career in either primary or secondary schools.

The Key Stages 2 and 3 programme will train you to teach mathematics in the 7 to 16 age range.

As a Key Stage 2 and 3 specialist, you don't have to decide which age group you want to work with before you start your course. If you enjoy mathematics but you’re unsure whether you should train for primary or secondary teaching, then this is the course for you.
School Experience

The pattern of school experience is usually

Year One - Three days a week (Mon-Wed) for four weeks in the autumn term and four weeks in the summer term in the same primary school
Year Two - Eight weeks in either a middle or secondary
Year Three - Ten weeks in either a primary or secondary school, (in Year 3 you will specialise in either primary or secondary)

Modules

There are five main strands that run through the programmes: Study of Mathematics; Mathematics Education; Professional Values and Practice (general teaching skills such as lesson planning and classroom management); The 'Core' subjects in the Primary Curriculum (English, Maths and Science for KS2); Classroom Experience in Schools. // The pattern of school experience is usually: Year One - Three days a week (Mon- Wed) for five weeks in the autumn term and three weeks in the summer term in the same primary school; Year Two - Six weeks in a secondary school and two weeks' 'specialist placement'; Year Three - Ten weeks in either a primary or secondary school, according to your choice.

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.

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?
