Gain specialist knowledge in pure mathematics, applied mathematics and/or statistics, preparing you for a variety of technical and non-specialised careers. Mathematics enables us to reason logically, to understand structure and to formulate scientific principles, whether from the physical, life or social sciences. At the start of the course, you’ll gain a broad education in pure and applied mathematics, including programming and statistics. You’ll have the freedom to study a broader mathematical pathway or specialise in your favourite subject areas, enhancing your analytical thinking and appreciation of the beauty of mathematics. 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 the specialist skills and knowledge for a technical career as well as receiving good training in analytical thinking. This combination of skills and knowledge means you will also be well-suited to non-specialist careers such as computing, financial services and management. The Master of Mathematics (MMath) course provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the Bachelor’s but with a greater exposure to research. You’ll study masters level units and a two-semester research project, preparing you for postgraduate study or a career in academic or industrial research. 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.
