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
- The Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics has an excellent reputation for the quality of its academic research and teaching. In the 2020 National Students Survey, 100% of mathematics students were satisfied overall with their course. We offer a full range of academic programmes in economics, finance, mathematics and statistics and we regularly provide customised training to various public and private sector organisations.
- We provide a broad education in mathematical sciences and their modern applications to commerce and the natural and social sciences, such as game theory, cryptography and the mathematics of networks. Our courses cover the theoretical background, as well as methods and modelling techniques, and equip you with a wide range of mathematical skills. The course has a flexible structure enabling you to choose option modules from other departments if you wish.
- Mathematical sciences are highly valued by employers, and our graduates go on to successful careers in business and finance, statistics, research and analysis, management, consultancy, and teaching, among many others.
- You will have access to Moodle, our online learning resource, where all information and materials relating to your programme of study and modules are available.
