What could you do?

There really are no limits to the type of job studying science and maths could lead to. You could get a well paid and respected job in thousands of professions:

  • Interested in people and how the mind works? You could become a clinical psychologist.
  • Do you live for football? Then sports science could be the job for you.
  • Like the idea of designing and building structures? Perhaps you are an engineer?
  • If you want to be involved in combating diseases and treating people who are ill, how about a career in medicine?
  • Dentistry is a great choice if you want to put a smile on people’s faces.
  • Love music, but don’t fancy appearing on Pop Stars? Music technology is a very popular choice.
  • Are you obsessed by animals? Animal health is a great career choice for anyone who wants to improve their lives.

You may be surprised to hear this, but the skills you gain from studying science and maths will open up opportunities in areas that are not obviously science related. For example:

  • Finance
  • Teaching
  • Marketing
  • Patent law
  • Photography
  • Art restoration
  • Media and film production
  • Food technology


…all these jobs directly use or build on the skills gained from studying science and maths.
