There is a guide on university aimed at potential university students by the Independent. This includes an A-Z on careers and the mathematics article has just been released. Apart from the picture (a calculator; a non-scientific one), the article seems quite good. Essentially, maths is a difficult but worth it and has a good range of post-degree options.
I am featured in a case study in the article. Noel-Ann Bradshaw, who contributes the Maths History features to the Travels in a Mathematical World podcast, and Steven Hughes, who will be organising the IMA Younger Mathematicians Conferences in 2010, both of the University of Greenwich, are featured as well.
