Education studies

Our BSc Mathematics with Education programme will allow you to develop your interests across mathematics, while also focusing on teaching, learning and education.

Mathematics has been proven useful in just about every field of human endeavour. It is used in science and exploration, in business and government, in industry and forecasting, in art and in banking. Our expert academics are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, guiding students through this rapidly developing subject. Active researchers, they conduct world-leading work and incorporate it into their teaching. In fact, over 87% of our mathematical sciences research outputs were judged as internationally excellent or world-leading (REF 2014), so you can be sure you’ll be learning in the most up-to-date of environments.

Our Mathematics with Education course will give you the flexibility to combine modules on statistics, pure and applied mathematics with modules that look at the learning and teaching of mathematics, as well as the wider field of education research. The programme will provide you with an outstanding foundation, should you wish to progress onto our PGCE Primary or Secondary Teacher Training programmes.

We pride ourselves on the personal attention our students receive, keeping seminar groups small and ensuring the relationships between staff and students are really strong. And you’ll be assigned an academic advisor; a lecturer who’ll help and guide you throughout your degree. You’ll get to know them well and, just as importantly, they’ll get to know you.

**Course Structure**

You’ll begin your degree by developing your existing mathematical knowledge, before moving onto more advanced subjects as the course progresses.
In years two and three you’ll be able to focus your studies through our optional modules, which means you can tailor your degree programme around your particular interests. Some optional modules – in subjects including statistics – are available each year.

Year 1

The first year will develop your skills in calculus and other topics you may have covered at A-level, such as mechanics and probability. Modules on computation, mathematical skills and how to present mathematical arguments will encourage you to develop ways of tackling unfamiliar problems. And modules on algebra and analysis will introduce important new concepts and ideas, which you will use in following years.

Year 2

Your second year will feature a combination of compulsory and optional modules. The compulsory modules will introduce you to exciting applications of mathematics, such as fluid flow and aerodynamics, while developing your understanding of the theories that underpin modern mathematics. You’ll also complete ‘Education in Action’, a compulsory module in which you’ll undertake a placement in a local school.
In addition to the optional mathematics modules that you’ll be offered, you’ll have the opportunity to take modules lectured within other Schools at UEA. Recent popular choices have included programming and educational psychology.

Year 3

In your final year you’ll be able to choose from a range of modules covering topics in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics, as well as a module on the history of mathematics. Optional education modules will focus on the learning and teaching of mathematics, and science communication.
You’ll also complete an independent project on an aspect of education research that particularly interests you.

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 do graduate employment figures really tell you?

When you look at employment stats, bear in mind that a lot of students are already working in education when they take this type of course and are studying to help their career development. This means they already have jobs when they start their course, and a lot of graduates continue to study, whilst working, when they complete their courses. If your course is focused on nursery or early years education, a lot of these graduates go into nursery work or classroom or education assistant jobs; these jobs are not currently classed as 'graduate level' in the stats (although they may well be in the future as classifications catch up with changes in the way we work), and many graduates who enter these roles say that a degree was necessary.

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.

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?
