 BSc Mathematics

A mathematics degree from Bristol provides you with core mathematical skills, which will equip you for a variety of careers and offer a strong basis for further study. The first two years of mathematics provide a broad background in pure, applied and statistical mathematics, underpinning more advanced material later.

Year one consists of compulsory topics. Year two then allows you to choose some topics that are of particular interest to you, meaning you can continue with a varied degree or choose to specialise.

In year three you will have a very wide choice of options from across mathematics to best fit your interests. You may also take some units from outside mathematics in years two and three.

As you move through the course you will gain academic independence, moving from small-group tutorial teaching in year one through to an optional independent project in your final year.
