The Graduating Class of 2004 returned to receive their degrees.
In a strawberry tea following the ceremony prizes
for outstanding academic achievement were presented by the Chair, David Rand.
Although we only give a small number of prizes each year, many students
achieve extremely high standards. This year saw our MMath student
numbers increase to 70, the highest so far, and nearly two-thirds of
all finalists acheived a First or 2(i). During the year nearly 60 PhD,
MSc and Financial Maths students successfully completed their degrees.
Most of this year's graduating class go on to a very broad range of
careers: in science, education, business, finance, actuarial science and
accountancy. A number will go on to do mathematical research here and at
other universities in the UK and abroad. Mathematics at Warwick has one
of the strongest records in terms of job placements for its graduates
and this year is no exception.
