What do maths and stats graduates do?

Some degrees are very vocational and train you in a particular skill or trade that you need to pursue a particular career. For example, most people graduating from medicine pass into the National Health Service as practicing doctors, and an economist is likely to search for a job in the city as an accountant or financial advisor. But there really is no “typical job” that maths graduates go on to.

Mathematics is more of a way of thinking, or a set of tools, than a specific learned skill. However, a mathematician’s logical, problem-solving and numerical skills are highly sought after in many different areas of employment. From designing the next Forumla One racing car to meterology – your maths skills can be used in so many different careers.
