Today we discuss why Maths grads will always be in demand, including a list of the transferrable skills you'll develop with a Maths degree.
One of the main reasons for going to university is to improve your career prospects and sometimes it’s really obvious where a degree might take you: dentists study dentistry, architects study architecture, and vets study veterinary science.
But what about Maths? What can you do with a Maths degree?
This is a question we get all the time.
Maths is one of those degrees where the outcomes might seem a little vague at first, but once you start exploring the career prospects, you’ll see just how exciting and varied they are.
It’s a great degree if you want to keep your options open and we’ve structured our undergraduate programmes in such a way that you can explore different areas of Maths and its applications. With modules in probability and statistics, financial mathematics and computer programming to name a few, we want to help you discover what areas of Maths you enjoy the most and what you’re best at.
In the UK, Mathematical Sciences is considered one of the degrees with the best employment prospects and as the demand for graduates soars, "a maths degree is a passport to a fascinating, well-paid career", The Guardian.
These are just some of the transferrable skills you’ll develop with a Maths degree and if you would like more information on the specialist skills we teach such as computer programming, graph theory and cryptography, check out the full list of modules on offer.
