Course summary

Mathematics sits within one of our smaller Departments. That means you’ll get to know your lecturers very well and vice versa. You’ll benefit from an individual approach and tailored care and support where needed. You’ll learn from research active academics, who are renowned internationally for their contributions to mathematics and mathematical physics. Three members of staff have been working on ‘Strings, Supergravity and Geometry,’ exploring string theory and differential and algebraic geometry. Other projects include researching classical and quantum integrable systems and scattering amplitudes in gauge theories. Aren’t familiar with these terms and theories? Rest assured, very few of our first-year students are. You’ll start at the basics and slowly work your way up to specialise in the areas that interest you most.

You’ll attend lectures as well as workshops and seminars. This way, you can learn from your lecturers as well as your peers. We’ve even set up a Student Proctor Scheme. This means students from higher years will be on hand to help you during and outside of your lessons. You’ll take part in practical computing classes and problem workshops.

Between your second and third year of study, you can take an optional sandwich year. Want to study abroad for a year? We’ve got you. Want to work in industry for a year? We have a dedicated placements tutor in our school, who will help you find your dream placement. Our students have worked for companies like GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Roche, BAE Systems, and the NHS. And that’s just our UK placements. Many of our students even go on to work at their placement host company after they finish their course.

You’ll study a course that is accredited by The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IGradIMA), the UK professional body for mathematics. Being an accredited university means that you will leave us with the educational requirements for the Chartered Mathematician (CMath) designation; your first step into gaining this recognition. That means employers know you have a high standard of knowledge, expertise and skill. Thus, making you stand out for all the right reasons.

Britain has a national shortage of mathematics graduates, so once you graduate you’ll be highly valued and able to apply your skills to an exceptionally wide range of careers. A small selection of careers that our previous graduates have pursued are financial consultants, business analysts, engineering consultants, programmers, statisticians, credit analysts, meteorologists, environmental analysts, teachers, actuaries and many more. The number of people working in jobs requiring numerical ability has been steadily rising in the UK in recent years. In the world of employment, maths graduates are in high demand for their skills in problem-solving, logical thinking and their ability to understand and interpret data. Recent maths graduates from the University of Hertfordshire have gone on to exciting careers in actuarial, finance, statistics and data science, IT, business analysis, teaching and many more.
