Degree in Mathematics
This study programme gives students the possibility to acquire the competencies typical of a mathematician and shows them how to apply these skills to real world problems.
This programme will provide students with an education in mathematics necessary for working in any area requiring a mathematician. That is to say, graduates from the mathematics programme at the UIB will be prepared to work in mathematics teaching and research as well as applications in other fields.
Graduates in Mathematics have a wide variety of professional career options (see: http://www.rsme.es/comis/prof/RSME-ANECA.pdf), including:
- Non-university teaching.
- Finance and banking.
- IT and telecommunications.
- Business consulting.
- Research and university teaching.
Although it is true that years ago most graduates in Mathematics would work in teaching, today a mathematics degree is highly sought after by business thanks to the huge ability graduates learn on this programme to adapt to different fields.
The UIB offers students the chance to take part in different exchange and mobility programmes:
- Exchange and mobility programmes: to complete part of your studies at another university in Spain, the European Union, and around the world, or to get work experience at businesses in the European Union, managed by the International Relations Service.
- Volunteer work experience and projects with university development cooperation programmes in least developed countries, run through the development cooperation programmes managed by the Cooperation for Development and Solidarity Office (OCDS).
High-quality official study
Legislation requires that official Spanish Degrees receive positive evaluations by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA). This process is called verification, and it serves to ensure that the development programme in which you will participate will provide the skills and learning results that it is supposed to.
The European Higher Education Area requires that a system be in place to ensure the quality of degree programmes.
Bachelor's programmes are subject to assessment and are continuously improved upon in order to guarantee their prestige and recognition within Europe. You can see the results of the assessments at results section.
