Course summary

In this course you will develop your mathematics knowledge to a master level and gain a valuable insight into industry.

Develop an in-depth understanding of a subject that touches on every aspect of society and the natural world, from the physics of the oceans to the modelling of financial markets. This masters-level degree will allow you to pursue your specific interests, whether you enjoy pure or applied mathematics. You can also gain valuable industry experience through a year-long paid placement.

Additionally, the course is approved by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and enables you to apply for Chartered Mathematician status following graduation. It is particularly ideal if you are considering a career as a research mathematician.

Placement

Between your second and third years you will carry out a paid industrial training placement, lasting around 12 months. Placements can be located anywhere in the UK, and occasionally take place abroad.

Career

As an MMath graduate you will be ideally placed for a career in mathematical research, whether in industry, academia or elsewhere.

Additionally, your mathematical knowledge combined with computing, teamwork and presentation skills will make you highly desirable to a range of other employers.

You may choose to work as a mathematician or statistician for public sector organisations, such as health authorities or the Office for National Statistics, or areas of the private sector including commerce and information technology. Furthermore, you can move into a range of related careers such as accountancy, banking, financial analysis, engineering, modelling, computing, teaching or actuarial work. Recent students have gone on to work for leading organisations from a wide variety of sectors including PepsiCo, the BBC, the Bank of East Asia and BAE Systems.
