Course summary

Gain specialist knowledge in pure and applied mathematics with a particular focus on statistics, preparing you for a career as a practising statistician. Mathematics enables us to reason logically, to understand structure and formulate scientific principles. Statistics is the collection, analysis and interpretation of data that is central to scientific progress, sound medical research and the work of government. This course is for you if you would like to study statistics and have a significant interest in mathematics. You’ll be trained how to analyse problems and interpret patterns in data to make careful predictions about the future. At the start of the course, you’ll gain a broad education covering pure and applied mathematics, including programming and statistics. You’ll specialise later in the course with an emphasis on statistics and probability. All of our courses are flexible and allow for a wide choice of units after year one. You may be able to switch courses during the first year. You’ll develop solid logical, analytical and practical problem-solving skills sought by employers. This broad knowledge and set of skills will prepare you not only for technical roles, but non-specialist careers such as computing, financial services and management as well. Put your learning into practice Alongside teaching, our academics carry out their own research in all branches of mathematics, which means you’ll be learning about the latest developments. Some units will give you the opportunity to work alongside our academics and contribute to research in the Department. You’ll also be supported during your studies by regular small group tutorials and one-to-one meetings with a Personal Tutor. Use specialist facilities You’ll have access to our Mathematics Resources Centre (MASH) to assist with revision and coursework if you need it. A final-year option also provides the opportunity to use our high-performance computing facility ‘Balena’, which can perform over 110 trillion calculations a second. Prepare for your future You could go on to work in a wide variety of areas such as in the finance sector as an accountant, actuary or analyst, as a statistician in government or into teaching. You could also go on to work as a data scientist or software developer in commerce or the technology sector. Recent employers include Aviva, British Telecom, Deloitte, EY, PwC and Tate & Lyle. Many of our graduates also choose to go on to postgraduate study in preparation for academic or industry-based research careers.
