Course details


All students follow a common programme of study for the first year. You will focus on core modules that provide a solid foundation in the main mathematical topics. You'll build on your existing knowledge in areas such as calculus, probability and statistics. There will also be an introduction to key mathematical concepts in pure maths, linear mathematics and mathematical structures. During the second year, you'll start to specialise by choosing from a range of optional modules. There's also the option to choose modules from outside of maths such as a language or business to expand your learning even more. The third year provides you with even more freedom to choose optional modules in the areas that interest you. From cryptography to quantum theory or finance to fluid dynamics you'll have multiple options to choose from. You may choose to do a project module providing you with an introduction to mathematical research and learning skills that may be useful for your future career.
