Course Information

Explore the full range of modern mathematics as you gain fundamental knowledge and advanced mathematical and statistical skills. Mathematics holds the key to advances in virtually all areas of our lives, from finance to computing, logistics to medicine and travel to weather forecasting. If you’re looking for a career that involves shaping technological or scientific progress, mathematics is an ideal degree for you. What’s more, our flexible course allows you to specialise in whichever area of mathematics interests you most. You will find our friendly and personalised approach in the small group tutorial besides your day to day lectures. We have particular teaching expertise in various areas of numerical modelling, financial mathematics, algebra, statistics, optimisation and mathematical physics. You can even choose to take a year out to study abroad or undertake a placement.

  • We offer excellent career support both during and after your study at Herts. Many of our placement students start the final year of their degree with a job offer from their placement company which is financially and personally rewarding.
  • Many of your lecturers hold FHEA status and teaching qualifications, as well as being experts on their field. Their teaching methods are informed by current research and quality enhanced approaches. Find out more about research and researchers at Herts for Maths and Physics here.
  • Our maths graduates are in demand and well paid by employers. This is demonstrated by the most recent survey of Longitudinal Educational Outcomes (LEO) in which the average earnings of our upper quartile graduates, five years after graduation, were ranked 15th highest out of 63 universities at £44,600pa.

Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

Britain has a national shortage of mathematics graduates, so once you graduate you’ll be highly valued and able to apply your skills to an exceptionally wide range of careers. A small selection of careers that our previous graduates have pursued are financial consultants, business analysts, engineering consultants, programmers, statisticians, credit analysts, meteorologists, environmental analysts, teachers, actuaries and many more. The number of people working in jobs requiring numerical ability has been steadily rising in the UK in recent years. In the world of employment, maths graduates are in high demand for their skills in problem-solving, logical thinking and their ability to understand and interpret data. Recent maths graduates from the University of Hertfordshire have gone on to exciting careers in actuarial, finance, statistics and data science, IT, business analysis, teaching and many more. 

These careers are also well paid. According to data from the government’s Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) Data Analysis, the University of Hertfordshire is ranked 16th (out of 64 universities) for the highest quartile earnings for maths graduates five years after graduating.
