Overview

Mathematics has proven incredibly useful in just about every field of human endeavour. It is used in science and exploration, in business and government, in industry and forecasting, and many more. Our expert academics are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, guiding students through this rapidly progressing subject. All of our lecturers are active researchers conducting world-leading work, which is incorporated into their teaching.

The BSc Mathematics, our most popular mathematics programme, allows you to develop your interests in mathematics and statistics. There is flexibility to combine modules from pure and applied mathematics and statistics with modules such as the history of mathematics or the theory of teaching mathematics. It is also possible for you to transfer from this programme to the four-year integrated Master’s in Mathematics, subject to strong academic performance.

We pride ourselves on the personal attention our students receive. In the first year, weekly tutorials in groups of 6-7 students allow you to really get to know the lecturer who will act as your academic advisor throughout your degree course. Just as importantly, it lets your advisor really get to know you. In Year 2 or 3 you can choose to undertake an individual mathematical project, in a field of your choice. This involves working closely with one of the lecturers to produce a poster or oral presentation in addition to a written report.

Course Structure

The first year of this three year degree programme builds on your existing A-level mathematical knowledge and introduces  you to more advanced concepts that will be developed through the course. You will have the opportunity to specialise in years two and three, with a variety of modules available so that you can tailor your degree programme around your particular interests. Assessment is by a mixture of coursework and examinations and you have the opportunity to work on an individual project during your second or third year.
