PROGRAMME DESCRIPTIONThe programme is designed for students who wish to study Mathematics at degree level, but also see their future in a managerial role especially in the finance sector. The mathematical element of the programme initially gives students a foundation in all branches of mathematics, for example algebra, analysis, statistics, geometry, probability and mathematical methods, but focuses more on topics of specific relevance to financial mathematics in the third year.

The Management topics constitute about a quarter of the programme, and include accounting, marketing, economics, and human resource management. During the first year all students follow a set course of modules, but in subsequent years there is more opportunity to choose topics, and therefore tailor the degree to suit your interests.

ABOUT THE Department of Mathematics
CAREERS A degree in mathematics is one of the most flexible qualifications you can obtain, and as a result graduates are among the best paid and the least likely to be unemployed. Many mathematics graduates become statisticians, actuaries, scientists, accountants, and so on. More and more often they are also going into careers in life sciences or the City. Opportunities also exist in teaching, and there is a real demand for graduates in this area. Recent graduates have found employment as: • Actuarial Analyst, Deloitte • Graduates in the Fashion Industry scheme, lyle and scott • Teacher, Harris Academy • Accounting Associate, Ernst & Young • Financial Analyst, GE Healthcare • Mathematical Developer, Oakham • Audit Assistant, KPMG • Finance Assistant, Eden Finance • Management Consultant, Pricewaterhousecoopers • Project Assistant, HSBC • Qualify Management Technician, Pacific life Insurance • Systems Analyst, QBE
TEACHING STYLE Teaching is predominantly by lectures, supplemented with tutorials and problem classes. Mathematics is not a spectator sport: to become a competent mathematician you must have a go at solving problems. Lecturers provide problem sheets, and if a problem defeats you, we hope and expect that you will ask for help.
STRUCTURE OF PROGRAMMES & ASSESSMENT Our students are assessed using a combination of coursework and examinations depending on the module.
LOCATION The central location of our department gives easy access to major libraries and many leading societies including the London Mathematical Society and the Royal Society.
SPECIAL NOTES King’s College London has a Study Abroad programme and UG Mathematics students are eligible to apply for this. Further details can be found at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/international/abroad/prospective/sa/
