Description

Mathematics is ever-present in all our lives. From the Internet to predicting the weather to space travel - all these things are possible because of mathematics. It is the language of science and a far-reaching discipline. Because of the wide range of topics that mathematics encompasses, we offer mathematics courses that are highly flexible and allow you to explore areas that you’re most interested in.
In your first year, you’ll gain a solid grounding in the major branches of mathematics, including calculus, algebra, statistics and mechanics. Having been able to establish the areas that most interest you in your first year, we give you a huge amount of choice in the years that follow. Modules are available in topics as diverse as fluid dynamics, environmental statistics, coding theory, and groups and symmetry. You can specialise in a particular area of mathematics according to your interests or aspirations. Or, you can retain a broad set of interests and explore several different areas.
Enhancing your degree
We offer two degree options, the MMath, BSc, a 4 year integrated Masters degree programme, and the BSc programme, which is a three year course. In most cases, it doesn’t matter which programme you apply for, as both have the same entry requirements and the structure of the first two years is identical. If you don’t yet know which programme would best suit you, we suggest you apply for the MMath, BSc degree, as it will be straightforward to transfer to the BSc later if you wish.
This course offers you the opportunity to spend a year working in industry or studying at a university abroad, both of which provide valuable experience and help your personal development. Both of these schemes add an additional year to your course, taking the total course length to 4 years..
Our industrial placement scheme gives you the opportunity to gain work experience in an industry relevant to your degree and interests

Course programme

The first year of your course will introduce you to the main branches of mathematics. You’ll develop a solid understanding of these core areas, which will provide you with the necessary background knowledge you require to explore more advanced topics later in your programme. The wide range of subjects you will explore at this stage allows you to define what areas of mathematics really interest you.

In your second year, you’ll have more freedom to choose and will be able to start specialising, with at least half (60 credits) of your programme being made up of optional modules. You’ll study compulsory modules in analysis, groups and vector spaces, vector calculus, and linear differential equations and transforms. Module options are available to you in areas including mathematical logic, computational mathematics, statistical methods, survival analysis, and more.

In your third year, the majority of your study will be in advanced optional modules. You’ll have complete control over which modules you study, provided you meet the module’s prerequisites. You could specialise in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, or statistics, or choose modules across the spectrum of subjects. You’ll also have a final year project, for which you’ll receive research skills training and carry out independent research. There are several topics that your project can relate to and you’ll be able to choose a topic which interests you.

In each year of this degree, up to one sixth of your study (20 credits) can be dedicated to discovery modules - modules taught by Schools across the University that allow you to broaden your learning. Provided they don’t clash with your timetable, you can choose modules in areas such as art, business, education, environment, history, languages, law, music, philosophy, psychology, and more.

Our academic staff have extensive research interests, which is why we are able to offer such a wide choice of up-to-date module options. You will graduate as a multi-skilled mathematician, perhaps with particular expertise in an area of interest or with the training necessary to work in a particular industry.
