Pure Mathematics with a Year in Industry

Course summary

Pure Mathematics 4 Year Full Time with a Year Abroad - UCAS code: G111 Mathematics underpins all contemporary science, business and technology, creatively applying the ideas of pure mathematics. Our four-year BSc degree in Pure Mathematics with a Year Abroad covers the fundamental mathematical concepts of real and complex analysis, geometry, and linear, abstract and categorical algebra. It allows you to focus your studies on pure aspects of the subject. Mathematics at Swansea University is a highly regarded degree which draws students from far and wide. Your learning will be shaped by inspirational and internationally-renowned academics including Prof Tomasz Brzezinski, Professor of Mathematics and expert in algebra and non-commutative geometry, and Prof Elaine Crooks, Professor of Mathematics, expert in analysis and partial differential equations.


The programme consists of an overview of pure mathematics with a mix of compulsory and optional modules. The compulsory modules cover the central topics of real and complex analysis, linear and abstract algebra, geometry, differential equations, and essential skills such as communication and use of mathematical software. Optional modules are available in a range of additional topic areas. The areas covered are those of current relevance in pure mathematics and are reflective of the research interests and specialisms of the academic staff of the department. Optional modules selected in one year may impose constraints on the options available in subsequent years, but the programme is structured so that at each level all students will have a fair selection of options to choose, no matter what they have taken in previous years.

Assessment method

A range of assessment methods are employed in this programme with a balance of exams and coursework. Coursework elements include regular problem sheets spread through the academic year, alongside practical PC-lab work where appropriate. Alongside this assessed work students also have regular small un-assessed tasks and assignments to complete to develop their mathematical understanding through a hands on approach. In their final year all students also complete a dissertation on a topic of their choice. These assessments reflect a variety of styles and are designed to enhance employability skills.
