Overview

The importance of statistics in today's information age cannot be overstated. Statistics are the tools we use to evaluate ideas, test theories, and inform policies. Statistics help us arrive at the truth. We live in an era where more data is collected than ever before, and demand is high for talented statisticians

Our Mathematics with Statistics BSc (Hons) course provides a thorough grounding in mathematics, combined with a very substantial statistics and probability component, right up to modern applications, such as in medical statistics, and a major final-year project, which offers a connection to contemporary statistics research.

Over the duration of the BSc Mathematics with Statistics degree, you will gain a solid grounding in the fundamentals of mathematics from geometry and linear algebra to complex variables and probability theory. This will be complemented by core modules designed to develop your skills as a statistician, as well as varied further topics chosen from all areas of pure and applied mathematics and statistics.
