Course summary

Statistics plays an increasingly important role in today’s world. Understanding how to manage, analyse and report on data is a valuable skill which can lead to a wide range of careers. Our Year in Industry programme enables you to gain paid industry experience in addition to being taught by our internationally-renowned mathematicians and statisticians, ensuring that you are fully prepared for your future career. You will be encouraged to fulfil your potential whilst studying in our friendly and dynamic school based in the multi-award-winning Sibson Building. Your studies To help bridge the gap between school and university, you’ll attend small group tutorials in Stage 1, where you can practice the new mathematics you’ll be learning, ask questions and work with other students to find solutions. You’ll study a mixture of pure and applied mathematics, and statistics, providing you with a solid foundation for your later studies. In Stage 2, you study some core modules which build upon the material learnt at Stage 1. You also start to tailor your degree to your interests through our range of optional modules. Throughout Stages 1 and 2, you attend specialist programme of workshops and events designed to ensure you have the best possible opportunity of securing a placement. Our in-house Placements Team will support you throughout the process. If you successfully secure a placement, you will spend a year working between Stages 2 and 3. In Stage 3 you return from your placement and continue to explore the areas you enjoy through our optional modules. Accreditation This degree meets the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competencies to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master’s degrees. MMath If you’d like to take your learning further and explore topics in greater detail, you can incorporate a year of masters-level study as part of your degree with our MMath programme (UCAS: G103). The MMath offers a fantastic alternative to the traditional BSc to MSc pathway and can be covered by the same stream of Student Finance as our other three- and four-year undergraduate degrees. Foundation Year If your grades do not qualify you for direct entry to this programme, you may be able to join the programme by first passing the Foundation Year of the four-year Mathematics with a Foundation Year degree (UCAS: G108). The Foundation Year provides an opportunity for you to develop your mathematics skills and start learning some university-level material, fully preparing you for university study before you progress onto your chosen mathematics programme. Superb student experience The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science (SMSAS) at Kent has a thriving student culture, with students from all degree programmes and all degree stages participating in student activities and taking on active roles in the School. As a SMSAS student you benefit from free membership of the Kent Maths Society and Invicta Actuarial Society. You can become a Student Rep and share the views of your fellow students to bring about changes. You could be employed as a Student Ambassador, earning money while you study by inspiring the next generation of mathematicians. Or join one of the society committees and organise socials and events for SMSAS students. You will be encouraged to fulfil your potential whilst studying in our friendly and dynamic School based in the multi-award-winning Sibson Building.
