- Understand the universal nature of mathematics as a discipline that knows no borders or language barriers
- Master a wide range of mathematical topics and techniques, such as calculus, probability, linear algebra and mathematical physics
- Learn to apply abstract and logical mathematical methods to real-world problems
- Boost your employability with an optional paid one-year work placement – past students have secured placements at organisations such as Axa, Barclays, Bloomberg, Disney, Microsoft, Toyota and Warner Music
- Take special career development modules to understand mathematics’ essential role across all industries and the opportunities available to you.
Year 1: Students developing foundational mathematical skills through core modules which include, Algebra, Calculus, Probability theory, Number theory and cryptography, Modelling, Programming and computational mathematics and a module on Skills, careers and employability analysis for mathematics students. Year 2: Students continue to develop mathematical skills through core modules including: Vector calculus, Linear algebra, Applied mathematics, Numerical mathematics, Real and complex analysis, Sequence and series, Professional development and employability as well as an elective module in Decision analysis or Applications of probability and statistics. Year 3: Students take modules in Advanced complex analysis and Differential equations as well as a group project, supervised by an academic member of the department. Students chose four elective modules from: Discrete mathematics, Dynamical systems, Mathematical processes for finance, Mathematical biology, Game theory, Groups and symmetry, Introduction to mathematical physics, Introduction to the mathematics of fluids, Operational research, Stochastic models, Probability and statistics II. Year 4: MSci students take three core modules: The mathematics of information, Forecasting, Perturbation methods, and a MSci project, as well as three elective modules from: Mathematics for quantum computing, Game theory, Graph theory, Mathematics: algorithms, computation and experimentation, Dynamical systems."

Points of entry
The following entry points are available for this course:
- Year 1
- Year 2
Contextual offers We apply a contextual admissions process for UK undergraduate applicants who have been in care or are the first in their family to enter Higher Education. Those who are eligible may receive a conditional offer with reduced entry requirements, typically two grades lower for A-levels and one grade (or eight tariff points) for BTEC or mixed qualifications. Read our contextual admissions policy for eligibility criteria and further information. Mixed qualifications Typically the only scenario where we make conditional offers expressed as UCAS tariff points is when an applicant presents mixed qualifications, most typically a combination of A-levels and a BTEC qualification. In this instance, we may make a tariff point offer to present the applicant with more flexibility on equivalencies. In this case, please be aware that we may still ask for a specific score across certain qualifications and subjects. E.g. 'This offer is conditional on you achieving 128 tariff points. This must include A-level Mathematics at grade B.' Subject exclusions We do not accept General Studies and Critical Thinking. These subjects will not be included in any conditional offer we make. Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
