I chose to study Mathematics with Economics BSc(Hons) as I found throughout school that I was good at mathematics. The economics came about after I took it as an A-Level, based on a recommendation by one of my GCSE teachers, and found I was able to understand the basic concepts easily. Because of this it seemed natural for me to continuing doing this at University. I was also very aware that doing this degree would open up a wide range of doors for future careers.
I chose Mathematics with Economics BSc(Hons) at Brighton for its focus on teaching practical applications such as programming skills and the option to do a placement year. I felt that the university and my course focus on providing students with education as well making them employable by creating opportunities to develop their interpersonal skills and gain practice through various opportunities.
