Field of Study:Business Administration and Management, General
Mathematics, General
Description:Mathematics is central to everyday life and to the way we see the world. It is an intellectual adventure in its own right but it is also used to understand the physical world – from black holes to global warming – and to find solutions in business and industry. All of our students take the same compulsory courses in their early years and it is often possible to switch between our different programmes in your first two years. In later years you can choose from our wide range of courses in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, operational research or financial mathematics.

Our recent teaching review noted that our academic staff are clearly passionate about their discipline, and their teaching engages and inspires students. Our graduates go on to rewarding careers in many different areas or to further studies at universities across the world. The most recent Research Assessment Exercise rated 70 per cent of our research in Pure Mathematics as 4*, world-leading, or 3*, internationally excellent. Our strengths in research inform our teaching.

Edinburgh graduates find a wide range of careers open to them. The logical, analytical and practical problem-solving skills you gain during your programme are sought after by employers. Many of our recent graduates have been employed by large firms in the financial and business sector, or have gone on to work in aircraft engineering, software engineering, investment analysis, transport logistics or teaching.
