The BSc Mathematics for Finance degree course gives students the opportunity to focus on Mathematics for Finance in addition to the general range of mathematical material that you will cover. To further enhance this you will also study certain specialist Finance modules from the
College of Business, Economics and Law.
The course gives you the chance to explore and understand the number theory that Pythagoras studied, the Financial Mathematics that the highest
flyers on Wall Street rely on, and a wealth of other topics reflecting the teaching team’s research expertise in probability, analysis, nonlinear partial differential equations, noncommutative geometry and algebraic topology.

The ability to think rationally and to process data clearly and accurately are highly valued by employers. Mathematics graduates earn on average 50% more than most other graduates. The most popular areas are the actuarial profession, the financial sector, IT, computer programming and systems administration, and opportunities within business and industry where employers need mathematicians for research and development, statistically analysis, marketing and sales.
Some of our students have been employed by AXA, BA, Deutsche Bank, Shell Research, Health Authorities and Local Government. Teaching is another area where maths graduates will find plenty of career opportunities. There is also the option to study further for a higher degree.
