Career prospects

A mathematically-based degree opens up a wide range of career opportunities, including some of the most lucrative professions.

Typical types of work our graduates have gone onto include as an actuarial trainee analyst in the audit practice, a graduate management trainee risk analyst and as a trainee chartered accountant on a graduate business programme. Employers value mathematicians’ high level of numeracy and problem solving skills.

Financial rewards are impressive, research by Pricewaterhouse Coopers revealed that mathematical science graduates earn on average an extra £241,749 over their lifetime than those who leave school after A levels. This is the third highest ‘graduate premium’ of all subject areas.

Nicky Moore
Mathematics and Statistics BSc (Hons)

Senior Statistician
F Hoffman La Roche Ltd

There were two main reasons why I chose to study in Liverpool. The first was the city itself; I remember coming for interview and feeling at home, and the second was the University's excellent reputation. It turned out to be a good choice. I had a great time, and I learnt a lot from some brilliant lectures. After graduating I worked for a year as a temporary statistician in a pharmaceutical company, and then went on to complete an MSc in Medical Statistics. I now work in Basel (Switzerland) as a senior statistician for a large pharmaceutical company. I have had a house built in France and am thoroughly enjoying being in the centre of Europe. Being a statistician is not what I planned to do when I was young, but I am happy that I chose to study maths and statistics for many reasons. The demand for statisticians is high, which means there is a choice of work in many countries. The pay is pretty good too!
