Careers Support

Careers support

What support is on offer for Warwick maths students?

There is a wealth of information and advice available to you as part of our department, and the best place to start is to meet with our dedicated careers consultant, Ray Ryan. Careers appointments can be booked either through MyAdvantage or via email.

The point of these careers appointments is to give you impartial advice that will give you more confidence when it comes to making decisions around your future career. The appointments take place in the careers office in Zeeman Building (C1.04), and any session might cover some of the following:

  • Discussing career options with a mathematics degree
  • Application advice (CVs, on-line applications & cover letters)
  • Preparation for an interview and/or assessment centre

One key piece of advice is this; don’t leave it too late! Career planning shouldn’t be something you only think about in your final year, and you’re welcome to make careers appointments at any time during your degree. In fact, the sooner the better!

Career options

As a maths student you will be developing a range of key employability skills – transferrable skills that employers look for in their new hires. Explore just some examples of jobs that recent Warwick maths graduates have moved into, along with some of the relevant skills that they built during their time here.

Build your skills

If you’re interested in developing your employability skills during your time at Warwick, make sure you register for the Warwick Award. The Award is the University’s free skills development programme that is available to all undergraduate and taught Master’s students.

Hear from our alumni

Our community of Warwick Maths alumni is large, diverse, and full of great stories to tell. To get a better idea of some of the roles our graduates have gone into after studying with us, we’ve compiled some case studies.
