Perhaps you've always been a keen mathematician? Maybe you’re excited about solving problems and puzzles. Or you might want to use your maths skills to expand your knowledge in areas as diverse as space travel, software development and complex medicine.

Whatever your reason for considering a maths degree, you’ve made a great decision. You will gain knowledge and skills that will prepare you for the workplace, and not only in jobs which use maths directly. Many employers value a mathematics qualification; your numerical, logical thinking and problem-solving skills enable you to tackle a variety of roles.

To cover the range of topics that mathematics embraces, we've made our courses flexible. Keep your degree broad with a BSc or MMath in Mathematics, or specialise in an area of your choice, from financial mathematics to statistics and operational research.

Why Study this Course

A mathematics degree offers you intellectual challenges and provides the skills in demand for a wide range of careers.

Flexible Degree Schemes

In most cases, you're free to switch between degrees at the end of year one if your interests change. You will also have the opportunity to complete a Professional Placement Year or a Year Abroad between years two and three. You don’t need to commit to either of these options until the start of the second year, so there’s plenty of time to decide.

Support Services

Your personal tutor is there to offer advice, in confidence, on both academic and non-academic matters. You will also have access to weekly tutorials, supervised computer laboratories and daily drop-in sessions for one-to-one support.

Summer Placement Opportunities

During the summer months, you will have the opportunity to complete paid work as a mathematician or statistician where you can gain valuable work experience and develop your professional skills. Our dedicated placements team can help you find a summer placement and provide support during your time there.

Excellent Facilities

You will be taught in Abacws, the new home of the School of Mathematics. This world-leading facility has been designed in collaboration with students and academic staff to create interdisciplinary, flexible and creative workspaces, with innovative teaching areas being a key feature, including a new simulated Trading Room for financial mathematics.

Professionally Accredited Course

This degree is accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA).
