Liverpool John Moores University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This BSc (Hons) course will give you a solid grounding in how mathematics and statistics, supported by IT solutions, are applied to a wide variety of problems encountered in industry, business and research organisations. From the outset, your focus will be on mathematics and statistics, although you are not expected to have any prior knowledge of statistics when you start the course. These studies will build a solid foundation in quantitative methods, combined with an understanding of how to develop software and use mathematical and statistical applications and then in the final year, you have a chance to specialise in areas like financial modelling, operational research, multivariate analysis and data mining. This degree has a very high academic and professional standing and the Applied Mathematics Department has been formally recognised for its high quality teaching, excellent resources and dedicated staff. The Department also boasts state-of-the-art facilities at its Byrom Street campus, with over 150 high performance computers and industry-standard software. We aim to improve your employability wherever possible on this course, which is why practical modules are introduced at every level. Most importantly, you can spend a sandwich year on a paid work placement to get a taste of what it’s really like to work in industry. The Department's strong links with over 450 local and national organisations mean that all of its courses are designed and developed to suit the needs of employers today, as well as creating excellent work placements for students. Currently we have close ties with Corus, Unilever, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, IBM, Eutechnyx, Jagex, Spiral House, Heinz, Liverpool Direct, Pilkington, MBNA Bank, HM Treasury, Lloyds TSB, Merseyside Police, Thames Water Authority, AstraZeneca, Littlewoods, Vauxhall Motors and GlaxoSmithKline to name but a few.

Students will be required to undertake modules that the University designates as core and will have a choice of designated option modules. Additionally, option modules may be offered subject to meeting minimum student numbers. Please see the programme specification document for further details on this course.
Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework. We recognise that all students perform differently depending on how they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of exam and coursework assessment methods for each module. Typically 25% of your mark comes from coursework and 75% from an exam, although some modules are assessed entirely by coursework done in the computer lab.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
