Graduates with a single-major degree in Mathematics and Statistics are recommended to take advantage of membership of one of the following three professional societies:
- The London Mathematical Society
- The Royal Statistical Society
- The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
Why become a member of a professional society?
Becoming a member of one of these societies has a great number of benefits.
- Keep up to date with the latest developments in mathematics and statistics and help to improve knowledge in the subject
- Influence government policy by having a voice in debates
- Network with other like-minded people within the field and improve your career prospects
- Enjoy discounts on training courses and professional exams, as well as other discounts
- Attend society-hosted events, including debates and meetings
The degrees in Statistics and in Mathematics with Statistics will grant you accreditation to Graduate Statistician status of the Royal Statistical Society (provided you achieve at least a Second Class Honours and take the appropriate options), and exemption from the probability and statistics exam of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, subject to satisfactory academic performance.
