The structure of the Mathematics programme offered by the University of Cambridge allows you to keep your options open, giving you the opportunity to discover your strengths, extend your knowledge and develop your interests before specializing.


Two aspects of the Mathematics programme offered by the University of Cambridge that the students greatly appreciate are its flexibility and the breadth of subjects offered. 

The amount of choice increases each year and after first year you can choose the number of options you study. Some students take as many options as they can; others take fewer and study them very thoroughly.


A Cambridge Mathematics degree is versatile and very marketable. The demand for our mathematicians is high in business, commerce, and industry, as well as the academic world.

The students go on to further study, while others follow a wide variety of careers. Recent graduates include a metrologist, sports statistician, journalist, and an avionics, radar and communications engineer, as well as teachers, actuaries, accountants, IT specialists, financiers and consultants.
