Careers in Mathematics

There are very few areas of industry a mathematics graduate cannot progress into. The financial sector is the most obvious route with roles in accountancy, global banking, financial risk and investment analysis all viable options.

Other roles are available in a diverse range of sectors, such as business and management, consultancy, software development, meteorology, IT and teaching. Many mathematics degrees are available in joint honours, and as such you can study alongside a field you are also interested in.
