Imperial Mathematics graduates enter a variety of fields of work after obtaining their degree. Holding a Mathematics degree from Imperial College London demonstrates that you are numerate, that you can master intellectually difficult material, that you have the organisation and self-motivation to complete a demanding programme, and that you are able to solve complex problems.
The top three industries students have entered in the last three years are Finance, IT and Telecommunications, and Accounting. Yet, with more and more companies looking for numerate students, the destinations of students are also changing. At recent Careers events, media, sports, and transportation companies, for example, have headhunted our students.
A large number of students continue with their studies after graduation, and have recently been accepted at some of the world’s top universities such as Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, Harvard and Princeton, as well as Imperial. Some take one-year taught masters courses (MSc, MBA, MA) that complement their mathematical skills with expertise in another area, such as Computing or Finance, while others embark on research degrees that lead to an MPhil or a PhD. Some take one-year teacher training courses leading to a Postgraduate Certificate of Education or join other training programmes.
Please visit the College's Careers section for more information on the destinations of our graduates.
