Why study mathematics?

Mathematics is an essential tool used everywhere, everyday in many fields. Ever present but often unseen, it helps shape technological, economic and scientific progress – from calculating journeys to far away planets, to developing treatments for disease and determining successful investment strategies.

Our School of Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics offers highly flexible degrees allowing you to specialise in your areas of interest.

Develop your analytical skills and logical reasoning, which along with our strong professional connections, will prepare you for employment in a range of careers including engineering, medicine, natural and social sciences and sports analysis.

Britain has a national shortage of mathematics graduates, so once you graduate, you will be highly valued and able to apply your skills to an exceptionally wide range of careers.

Previous graduates have become financial consultants, business analysts, engineering consultants, programmers, statisticians, credit analysts, meteorologists and environmental analysts.
