Our three–year BSc Mathematics degree provides a firm foundation in the ideas and techniques of modern mathematics and statistics. Our degree focus on three core – Pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics
On this degree, you will select mostly mathematics modules in the later stages. These include
Studying Mathematics and ststistics builds on the knowledge you have gained at school / college. Some topics will be familiar, and others will be completely new. All of our mathematics and statistics degrees follow a common core of modules at stages 1 and 2 to equip you with the key skills and knowledge that all mathematicians and statisticians need.Course details Available as: Full Time
Studying mathematics and statistics builds on the knowledge you have gained at school / college. Some topics will be familiar and others will be completely new.All of our mathematics and statistics degrees follow a common core of modules at Stages 1 and 2, to equip you with the key skills and knowledge that all mathematicians and statisticians need.
This provides you with a solid foundation on which to build more specialist knowledge later in your degree, as well as making it relatively easy to transfer between degrees within the School.
Mathematicians and statisticians have always been highly valued by employers for their analytical and problem-solving skills, and their ability to think logically and quantitatively. As well as developing these skills, our degrees also equip you with the key skills which are essential for the employment market such as communication, teamwork, planning and organisation. There are some careers for which a degree in mathematics is usually required, for example, teaching mathematics, statistical work, actuarial work, some research and development, and some areas of computing. Mathematics graduates are also strong candidates in sectors such as:
A degree in mathematics and statistics can also lead on to further study including PhD, MSc and PGCE courses. In short, mathematics graduates can be found in a very wide cross-section of careers, and in both the private and public sectors.
