Do you enjoy numbers the way others enjoy music, poetry or art? Do you enjoy using Mathematics to explain real-world phenomena and solve problems? Mathematical training develops specific skills and broad analytical expertise, which are valued across all professions. There is also a particular demand for graduates who not only have quantitative skills, but also know how to use them. This course delivers that sought-after combination – through our teaching style, and our focus on real-world applications of both mathematical and statistical techniques. For example, you’ll use the mathematics computing laboratories as an integral part of your learning process, making your study as much experimental as theoretical. Our Computing Science and Mathematics division provides a stimulating and supportive learning environment, and we’ve a strong and active research group. Its primary interest is the application of mathematics to biology, economics and life sciences, and we offer combined Honours degrees in the relevant disciplines. Mathematical Contest in Modelling Since 2011, the University of Stirling teams have been participating in an international competition run by COMAP (USA). In 2017 over 8,500 teams from all over the world took part. It's a great way to gain research and leaderships skills. In 2017 four of our teams finished in the top 9% in the world. The University of Stirling Mathematics Society We have a vibrant Mathematics Society where you can develop further skills through team activities. It's run by students for students. Applied Mathematics can also be studied as a specialism.
