Overview

If you’re curious about numbers and how they’re used practically in the ‘real world’, a Mathematics BSc can lead you down many career paths.
Mathematics is an ancient subject which, from its earliest days, has underpinned much of daily life, in finance, commerce, science, technology, engineering and even philosophy – from understanding the structure of the universe and predicting earthquakes to interpreting error-correcting codes on digital devices and enabling us to stream music and video.

Mathematics has shaped our view of the world, used by physicists, engineers, statisticians, analysts and economists as a tool to model real world situations to find new and novel solutions to problems. One of the top 15 universities in the country in Guardian University Guide 2020, Coventry University has a long tradition of teaching mathematics with a strong emphasis on its applications in practical situations. Accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), this course meets the educational requirements towards gaining Chartered Mathematician status, the first of two stages to do so.

You will also be given the opportunity to participate in our Secondary Initial Teacher Training programme. As a SCITT trainee, you will spend time during your second and third year of your subject degree, teaching and learning alongside expert practitioners. There will be one day a week release from your degree to facilitate this. You could work with a selected partner school within the Coventry SCITT. Students who undertake this pathway must decide during their first year of their degree if they wish to opt into the Secondary School Experience pathway. This is followed by a numeracy and literacy test and interview for selection. Subject to passing these, students will then follow the training pathway. Those who choose not to participate will follow the normal course structure.

Career opportunities

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.

We have an outstanding track record in employability with 90% of graduates in work or further study after six months (DLHE 2014/15) and 75% of those employed in professional roles.

For those who combined their studies with Initial Teacher Training, on completion of the course, students who wish to continue to become qualified teachers can seek employment with a secondary school and following a year of employment with the school could become eligible as a newly Qualified Teacher.

To improve your employment prospects and gain valuable professional experience, we strongly encourage you to spend a year on industrial training after year two. Our faculty’s employability and placements unit EEC Futures, which won the ‘Best Placement Service in the UK’ award at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards in 2015 and 2016, will provide assistance to help you find an appropriate placement.
