Applying mathematical and statistical methods to commercial and scientific problems develops a rational approach to problem-solving. Our BSc Mathematics with Statistics provides excellent training in the methods and applications of mathematics and statistics. It covers pure and applicable mathematics, statistical theory and data analysis. You will use software packages to develop your understanding of the subject and to help you solve problems. Training in the mathematical sciences is highly valued by employers. Graduates in these subjects are in great demand and earn on average 10% more than other graduates. Around 35% have jobs in business or finance, with the next most popular choice being teaching, at around 10%. The BSc Mathematics and BSc Mathematics with Statistics programmes have a common core of modules for the first two years. It is therefore possible to transfer between programmes during this time should your preference change. HIGHLIGHTS
