  • The facilities of this university are moderate due to the interruptions of the union events which happen frequently. The societies are all good but I feel DUSA is the best of it.

  • Seems like wifi is not there because it doesn’t work and I don’t feel they are offering a good carer for the student.

Course programme

Mathematics is taught as a broad-based syllabus at Levels 1 to 3. This leads onwards in Level 4 to a set of topics inspired by our internationally-rated research strengths in Applied Mathematics, including numerical analysis, mathematical biology, applied analysis and magnetohydrodynamics. This means our undergraduate programme is always up-to-date and focused on important and exciting applications of modern mathematics.

Computing power is used extensively in modern mathematics. You will have access to well-equipped PC suites, and be able to use specialist Mathematics software packages.

We are a relatively small Division and are able to operate with an excellent staff/student ratio. One advantage of this is that we can get to know each student personally, and so can offer a friendly and supportive learning experience. Staff are ready and willing to help at all levels, and in addition, our Student-Staff Committee meets regularly to discuss matters of importance to our students. You will be able to join DUMaS (Dundee University Maths Society), an active society open to students studying Mathematics.

Teaching and Assessment

You will learn by a combination of lectures, tutorials, workshops and computer practicals. You will also undertake supervised work in a dedicated PC laboratory using mathematical software packages. All students taking Level 1 modules carry out two mini-projects, working in teams of 3 or 4. The use of specialised software continues within the Level 3 and 4 modules, where you will be introduced to the powerful Matlab system.

Assessment for all modules (except Mathematics 1A and the Honours Project) involves a final examination and takes into account varying amounts of continuous assessment, including assignments and class tests.

Additional information

Career opportunities: Many of our graduates enter the financial sector following careers paths in accountancy, banking, the stock market and insurance. Exciting new applications of mathematical biology are opening up yet more career options in the biotech industries. Here you could be involved in designing new anti-cancer drugs or new treatment regimes for patients with diabetes. Even if you do not take your mathematics any further than university, employers know that mathematics graduates are intelligent, logical problem solvers. With this training behind you, the career options become almost limitless.
