Hey everyone, now I know this must be one of the most frequent and equally the most irritating question you get asked but I could really do with some advice.
I am in the process of choosing my universities and I am choosing out of Sheffield, Bath and Cardiff, for a Mathematics degree. I really don’t know how to decide, I have visited all 3 universities but I liked them all. I did get a good feel for Cardiff but I had a couple of issues.
One was the library, they showed us one which looked a little small but I think (am hoping) that was just the Mathematics library. How is the Cardiff library generally seen?
My other, more major, concern was what it is like for maths. I personally don’t like to take notice of league tables but it isn’t usually very high for maths. Can any maths students tell me how they feel their maths degree is going to be valued? For example do recruiters come to Cardiff for Maths grads? Also what do the maths students usually go onto do from Cardiff, would many go into finance, is it possible to go into the city with a Maths degree from Cardiff or do those employers generally (unfairly) stick the Oxford and Cambridge people?
Anyway, sorry for such a demanding set of questions, any advice regarding any of it would be extremely useful, thanks alot! Also if there are any of you studying maths, would you mind if I gave you a PM for some more useful info. Thanks alot,
Best of Black Friday 2018
