Mathematicians are required in almost every industry so the job prospects for maths graduates are truly diverse, challenging and rewarding. Our enthusiastic staff are committed to stimulating your enthusiasm for this subject, helping you achieve your potential throughout the course and into your career.

Our BSc (Hons) Mathematics degree contains plenty of pure and applied mathematics as well as some numerical analysis. You will have the opportunity to learn a broad range of mathematical topics that will develop your knowledge and strengthen your understanding of the subject.

Learning is through a mix of lectures, tutorials and assignments with a significant level of personal study and, as teaching groups are not large, you can be sure of excellent support and attention from teaching staff. You will also have the opportunity to pursue an area of personal interest through submission of a dissertation in your final year.

About the course

Group sizes are relatively small with an average of about 20 students per class so you will receive excellent support and attention from teaching staff.

During your studies you are not required to specialise in any particular aspect or application of mathematics, though there is an opportunity to do so if desired.

Additional topics included on the course, which you will study mainly during your final year, have been chosen because they introduce you to areas of current interest and lead you naturally towards research topics.
