Subject

Mathematics

This course covers many exciting elements of mathematics, from abstract ideas of algebra and number theory to the mathematical modelling of biological phenomena. During your studies you will have the freedom to focus on areas of mathematics that are of most interest to you, and explore new and exciting topics that you may never have encountered before. This course is fully accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and, with the right module choices, you may choose to obtain the BSc Mathematics with Statistics degree. Furthermore, you will have access to outstanding facilities to enhance your studies during your time at Nottingham.

Modules

In your first year you will study core mathematics, which provides the foundations for your later studies, together with more specialist material in the three main subject areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and probability and statistics. In your second year you will choose from a range of optional modules and will typically continue to study two of the three main mathematical subject areas. In your third year you will choose from a wide range of advanced optional modules, one of which may be an individual project or involve group project work. You may also choose to specialise in one of the three main subject areas, receiving your degree in Mathematics (Pure Mathematics), Mathematics (Applied Mathematics) or Mathematics with Statistics.

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 comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

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?
