Careers

Whether you have a firm career plan or not, a mathematics degree can be tailored to meet your needs.

Mathematicians are in high demand across a range of sectors and we have known graduates land roles in every imaginable industry, from fashion to investment banking.

A Mathematics degree from the University of Manchester puts you in good stead for employment as it provides you with certain skills such as:

  • A high level of numeracy
  • The ability to apply logic to a situation
  • A rigorous approach to problem solving
  • The ability to deal with abstract concepts
  • Analysing and interpreting data.

Due to the broad spectrum of subjects our academic staff are interested in, we can offer you more unit options than many other institutions. This means you can custom build your degree to suit your interests and career direction.

We offer more specialised degrees, Actuarial Science and Mathematics (3 Years) [BSc] for example, that will be of interest to students with a clear career direction. We also offer the chance to take all of our BSc courses to MMath level, necessary if you wish to consider an academic career.

However, to help enhance your university experience it is important to gain essential skills that employers look for, such as:

  • Communication
  • Team building
  • Innovative thinking
  • Presentations
  • Leadership.

From the School Career pages you will find a variety of information and advice relevant to different aspects of your career search and level of study.
