  • The technological world of today provides an ever-increasing need for graduates in these specialist fields of study — in every industry.
  • The range of degrees available in these fields is constantly expanding. Many institutions work with employers to develop practical courses that train students in new technologies as they evolve.

Maths and Computing in the UK

  • The UK has a consistently high standard of teaching and access to cutting-edge technology, and is therefore seen as a great place to complete a degree in computing or mathematics. 
  • Many computer scientists and mathematicians still use UK universities and colleges as bases for research into new systems. The country remains one of Europe’s leading markets for software and IT services in particular. 

A history of innovation

  • The UK has an impressive history of discovery and innovation in both mathematics and computing, thanks to the work of people such as World Wide Web creator Tim Berners-Lee and Alan Turing - the inventor of the first modern computer.  
  • Equally, with such globally renowned mathematicians as the late Professor Stephen Hawking forming part of UK university faculty, there can be few more exciting places to study. 

Globally recognised universities

  • Four UK universities are listed in the Top 20 for Computer Science globally (THE World rankings 2019) - the University of Oxford (#1), the University of Cambridge (#4), Imperial College London (#11) and the University of Edinburgh (#17).
  • Four UK universities are also listed in the Top 20 for Mathematics globally (QS World University rankings 2019) - the University of Cambridge (#5), the University of Oxford (#6), Imperial College London (#11) and the University of Warwick (#20).
