It is highly ranked in the university league tables for my degree, which also has the added benefit of getting me exemptions from a number of professional actuarial examinations.

One thing you must never forget is to enjoy your studies. Don’t forget the reason why you chose mathematics; it should interest and motivate you. Turning up to lectures shouldn’t be a chore.

Maths isn't just sums and algebra, it's like a whole language that can be learned and once you can speak it, anything is possible.

The fact that employers came to Southampton University to specifically recruit from our course was absolutely fantastic. I am now employed with an airline which has a large Operational Research department.

I’ve enjoyed the range of modules you could do. In third year we were allowed to choose from a wide range of topics; whatever you were interested in, and for me I thought that was one of the best parts. I could go and pick the modules I really wanted to do.

For Alastair, it was a number of things that attracted him to the University. Primarily it was the passion of the department for its subject and the desire for students do well and become mathematicians. He was also impressed its reputation, the range of great facilities and the quality of the accommodation.
