Mathematics

This course offers a sound basis of knowledge, understanding and skills in the main areas of mathematics and encourages a detailed understanding of abstract mathematical concepts, logical argument and deductive reasoning. In addition, the programme aims to develop advanced knowledge and skills in the areas of Macroeconomics, Microeconomics and Applied Economics.

The study of mathematics is fascinating and challenging. It develops a set of skills that are in high demand across a range of sectors. The combination with economics opens up a variety of exciting professional careers in accountancy, finance, banking, investment, business and IT. This programme provides you with the opportunity to develop your knowledge, understanding, technical skills and confidence to operate successfully in an international and globalised work environment. In your first year you will be introduced to a wide variety of mathematical and statistical theories in addition to a solid introduction on microeconomics and macroeconomics. This foundation year will also focus on the computational and algorithmic aspects of mathematics and its uses in the development of modern mathematics. The second year will focus on the mathematical and statistical modelling of natural. By implementing cutting edge computer software, you will be able to explore the beauty and power of mathematics in action. This year is also focused on enabling you to develop a deep understanding of economic principles and the real world practical applications of economic theory and methodology. Having been exposed to the gamut of mathematics, statistics and economics courses during the first two years, the final year is focused on your career aspirations and your specific interests in mathematics and economics. You will also undertake a final year project on a topic that interests you, write up a report and give a presentation.

This is a degree in demand, as business increasingly needs workers who can examine and explain complex data. And yet the number of economics graduates fell by nearly 10% last year, which means demand is even greater. As so many economic grads go into banking and finance, it's not surprising that over half of all 2015's economics graduates who did go into work were working in London. And don't think it's just the finance industry that's interested in these graduates - there's a significant number who enter the IT industry to work with data as analysts and consultants. It's quite common for economics graduates to go into jobs such as accountancy and management consultancy which may require you to take more training and gain professional qualifications - so don’t assume you won’t have to take any more exams once you leave uni. And the incentive to take them, of course, is better pay, which will be on top of an already healthy average starting salary of over £30,000 for graduates working in the capital.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
