You can work as a mathematician or statistician if you choose to take a professional placement year.
You will have support to apply for placements that appeal to you from a wide range of industrial partners. Placements are available in Cardiff, across the UK and also internationally and most have competitive salaries.
When you are on your placement, your work will be directly supervised by your placement provider. You will be working on real problems and using mathematics to produce results.
You will also have close contact with our Mathematics placement coordinators so you can discuss your progress and get the most out of the year. This will include visits as well as regular email contact.
If you haven't made up your mind about taking a placement when you apply there is flexibility to transfer between the three and four year courses at the end of your first year, subject to your academic performance.
