Careers in mathematics and statistics

A degree in Mathematics or Statistics is highly sought after by employers, as it brings with it a guarantee of numerate ability and proficiency with data.  Some potential careers will sound familiar (Academia, Actuarial, Consultancy, Finance) but are no less attractive or lucrative for that.  Others, including Advertising, Bioscience, Defence and Journalism, may sound more surprising, but they represent a small selection of the careers entered by graduates in Mathematics & Statistics from St Andrews.

For more information on careers in Mathematics and Statistics please have a look at the Mathematics and Statistics section of the Careers Centre pages.

The School's careers liaison officer is Dr Chuong Tran and your point of contact in the Careers Centre is Delia Belelli.
