Career prospects

Graduates of the MSc and PhD programmes move on to many different careers. Recent graduates have moved into fast track teacher programmes, jobs in finance (actuarial, banking, insurance), software development, drugs testing and defence work, as well as University postdoctoral or lecturing posts. The MSc programme is of course a natural route into doctoral study in Mathematics and related fields, both at Liverpool and elsewhere. Some of our PhD students move on to postdoctoral positions and to academic teaching jobs and jobs in research institutes, both in the UK and elsewhere.

The excellent University Careers & Employability Service is open to all postgraduates. 

Upon successful completion of the degree you will be ideally equipped to work in investment banks, pension or investment funds, hedge funds, consultancy and auditing firms or government regulators.
