If you're driven by intellectual curiosity and enjoy the satisfaction of cracking difficult puzzles, this course is for you. BSc Mathematics offers a rigorous foundation in mathematics that will help you stand out to top employers. Vocational units, currently including Financial Risk Management and Maths in Schools, prepare you for a successful career in industry. Opportunities to undertake a research project could inspire you to pursue postgraduate study. Our lecturers are passionate about their subject, with modules informed by cutting-edge research in fundamental mathematical abstractions, statistics and practical applications to global problems. You may be able to try units in quantum mechanics or mathematical biology, or take the opportunity to mentor and learn from students studying the same subject overseas. Year one consists of compulsory topics, covered in lectures, small-group tutorials and working through exercises independently and with peers, as well as freedom to explore a range of topics in collaboration with your personal tutor and fellow students. In your second and third year you can start to shape your degree to fit your interests, continue with a varied degree or choose to specialise. You'll also have the chance to study units outside mathematics. After your first year, support for your studies continues in the form of drop-in sessions with lecturers, exercise and feedback classes, and student-led Maths Cafés. As you move through the course you will gain academic independence, with flexible opportunities for project work.
