Undergraduate degrees

Undergraduate degrees

Mathematics plays a fundamental role in modern society, underpinning everything from smart phones and the internet to engineering and architecture. Equally, mathematics can be fascinatingly abstract. Mathematics graduates are highly numerate problem-solvers who can think logically and laterally. The universal nature of a mathematics degree means the skills you develop are valued in a diverse range of sectors.
