Overview

The Financial Mathematics programme provides good preparation for a career in finance by combining the study of core mathematics and statistics with topics in economics and finance. These include analysis of shares, equities, cash flows and interest rates, along with an introduction to the principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics. You will receive a solid grounding in mathematics, statistics and economics.

In your final year, half the programme consists of core modules in statistics and financial economics, alongside your choice of options ranging from Games, Markets and Information to Chaotic Dynamics.

Career opportunities

Rather than ask which careers require mathematics, the question should probably be which careers do not! Not only are mathematics and statistics central to science, technology and finance-related fields, but also the logical insight, analytical skills and intellectual discipline gained from a mathematical education are highly sought after in areas such as law, business and management. Additionally, there is a strong demand for new mathematics teachers to meet the ongoing shortage in schools.

The range of employment opportunities open to those with mathematical and statistical training includes the broad areas of finance, computing, consulting and management. Many of our graduates start their careers with some of the most sought-after employers. Recent employers include BAE Systems, Lloyds TSB Group, Skandia Life, Friends Provident, Logica CMG, UniChem, Generics UK, Thames Water, the Civil Service, QinetiQ and Liverpool Victoria Insurance.

As well as being designed to meet the needs of future employers, our degree programmes will also give you a solid foundation from which to pursue further study in mathematics or scientific research. Around a quarter of our recent graduates have gone into postgraduate education, either obtaining teaching qualifications or reading for higher degrees such as MSc and PhD.
