    Can anybody think of a career with a maths degree that sounds really interesting, you get to travel alot, and are not stuck in an office all day? I'm starting doing a maths degree this october and am thinking of possible career options other than finance or teaching!

    You can always lecture if you do well and do some post grad studies. If you're really interested I guess that would be a fun job. Firstly, you get to talk about an interest all the time, well paid, and you get huge holidays (think uni term dates)

    Excellent suggestion. A huge amount of scientific work today relies on statistics, and therefore they are in demand in all sorts of places, from hopsitals to habitats of wildlife of scientific interest.

    that does sound really good! As does working for the British Antarctica Survey ( http://www.antarctica.ac.uk/ )...although it is quite far away ( what with it being based in antaractica and all )

    Investigative accounting, you have to look into company's accounts and provide evidence for prosecutors in a court case, forensic just means gathering information for court action.

    But it sounds more exciting than that, doesn't it?
