Research lies at the heart of our department - 87% of research classed as world-leading or internationally excellent (REF 2014).
You can choose from a wide range of Mathematics modules taught by renowned experts.
You'll become highly employable - our graduates have entered careers in banking, consultancy, accountancy, management and more.
Our BSc course contains modules in all branches of mathematics. In pure mathematics, we offer modules in algebra, analysis, geometry and number theory. In applied mathematics, we offer modules in complex systems, probability, statistics and theoretical physics. During your first year you will follow a fixed group of modules, but in your second and third years you will have more freedom to choose modules and tailor your degree to suit your interests.
A degree in mathematics is one of the most flexible qualifications you can obtain, and as a result our graduates are among the best paid and the least likely to be unemployed. Many of our mathematics graduates become statisticians, actuaries, scientists, accountants, or go into careers in life sciences or the City. There is also considerable demand for graduates of mathematics in the teaching.
