Course summary

Gain a broad and balanced foundation of theory and practical skills in mathematics with a particular focus on statistics. 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. In the first year, you’ll gain an introduction to university-level mathematics and statistics before focussing more on statistics in the second year. In the final year, you’ll choose from a wide range of optional units to match the areas in which you would like to specialise. These units are available across pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and probability and statistics. As with all of our mathematics courses you will have the option to switch after the first year, so you can keep your options open when you apply. 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. Teaching You’ll learn from academics with expertise in different areas of mathematical sciences, including algebra and geometry, analysis, applied and interdisciplinary mathematics, numerical analysis and scientific computing, statistics and probability. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Facilities You’ll be able to access our Maths and Statistics Help (MASH) centre to get help with revision, tests and coursework. 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. You’ll also be supported during your studies by regular small group tutorials and one-to-one meetings with a Personal Tutor. Careers You’ll be able to go into a wide variety of careers including in the finance sector as an accountant, actuary or analyst, as a statistician in government or teaching. You’ll also be well suited to roles developing software 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.
