Studying maths should develop skills in logical thinking and strategic knowledge, demonstrating to employers your advanced numerical and analytical ability, both of which are rare and in demand on the graduate job market.
A mathematics degree can open up a wide range of career opportunities in industry, accountancy, banking, computer analysis, marketing, industrial design, management and scientific research. You could be employed in a wide variety of roles, for example, as an actuarial analyst, actuary, forensic accountant, operational researcher, research scientist, teacher, statistician or stockbroker.
