The growth of the European Union has led to a significant increase in career opportunities for graduates who have a high level of language capabilities in addition to the analytical and numerical skills developed whilst studying mathematics.

You will normally spend the third year of this four-year degree programme studying mathematics at one of our partner universities, where your chosen language is normally spoken; see the lists of relevant institutions below. Your stay abroad will usually take place under the Erasmus scheme. Erasmus students normally qualify for an Erasmus Mobility grant, designed to help with the increased cost of living abroad.

Studying mathematics abroad gives you the unique opportunity to immerse yourself completely in the local language and culture, both academically and socially. You will become highly fluent in your chosen language, and gain a deeper understanding of the social, economic and political make-up of your host country. While at Southampton your language training will concentrate on improving your linguistic skills of listening, understanding, speaking and writing.

Programme structure

As people in different countries in Europe and in the world work together more and more closely, it is important to understand from first-hand experience how other countries and cultures work, and to be comfortable in a foreign language and culture. At the same time, as business, political decision making, public and private sector management and the social sciences are becoming more quantitative in their methods, making mathematical models and simulations, in the widest sense, and understanding and interpreting such models and results, is also crucial in ever more lines of work. Therefore combining the study of mathematics with that of a foreign language and culture, and a year of study abroad, prepares you for many things you will find in your work after university. This is a four year course in which the third year is normally spent abroad in a country where the language of study is normally spoken (normally in a Mathematics Department of a University).

Transfer to this programme is normally only possible early in Semester 1 from a number of other programmes in the School.

Career opportunities

Employability is embedded into modules from the first year onwards and right from the first lecture. We explain the degree skills which are taught throughout the modules and offer a number of optional employability modules.

The technical skills you will acquire are in great demand, as are the skills of understanding and analysing problems, together with communicating the results in an international language.

Our degrees are a passport to vocational and non-vocational careers alike, with recent graduates employed in roles ranging from actuaries and statisticians to crime analysts and medical researchers.
