Study with us
A surprisingly creative discipline which underpins and impacts just about everything, Maths at Essex isn't what you'd expect.
Our undergraduate courses help you understand the why as well as the how of mathematics and
related subjects, and you can tailor your studies to your own interests with an exciting independent project in your final year.
Study abroad and placement years
You have the option, with all our courses, to spend your third
year studying abroad with no tuition fees for that year - a great way to boost your CV and confidence.
Many of our courses have a placement year option, so you can spend your third year working in a relevant industry or gain experience with a shorter summer placement.
Previous students and alumni have worked in companies including AXA and Expedia among others.
Enhance your career prospects
Whatever you choose, our careers and employability module will help you build confidence
in yourself and your subject, hone your interview skills, and ensure you're in the best position
to pursue your chosen career or academic path when you graduate.
Our students' wellbeing is our highest priority, and we have an open-door policy.
