Course summary

Develop a broad foundation of theory and practical skills in mathematics, statistics and computing, preparing you for specialist and non-specialist careers. Mathematical Sciences combines traditional mathematics with statistics and computing. This course is for you if you’d like to keep your options open and study a broader range of topics. In the first year, you’ll explore an introduction to mathematics at university level before choosing areas in which you’d like to specialise later in the course. In year two, you’ll also have the option to study computing, physics and economics units run by other departments. You’ll develop the knowledge and practical skills appropriate to a technical career as well as receiving good training in analytical thinking. This combination means you will also be well-suited to non-specialist careers such as computing, financial services and management. 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. 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.
