About This Course Study patterns, structure, the very basis of life. Discover how to use mathematics to measure the world and the universe – and give them comprehensibility and meaning. UEA’s BSc in Mathematics has been designed to develop your interest and expertise in mathematics and statistics. You will be given the flexibility to focus on pure and applied mathematics and statistics, or complement your studies with modules from related subjects taught by other UEA Schools, such as meteorology, business, computing, and financial accounting. At UEA you’ll benefit from internationally recognised, research-led teaching and a high academic staff to student ratio, ensuring you graduate with a deep understanding of mathematics, and great career prospects. Lectures are complemented by small group teaching in year 1, and regular workshops in later years, ensuring you receive high quality contact with our world-class lecturers. Overview Mathematics has been proven useful in just about every field of human endeavour. It is used in science and exploration, in business and government, in industry and forecasting, in art and in banking – and our BSc Mathematics is incredibly popular as a result. Our course will help develop your interests in mathematics and statistics, and its flexible format will allow you to combine modules from pure and applied mathematics and statistics covering topics such as the history of mathematics or the theory of teaching mathematics. Our expert academics are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, guiding students through this rapidly developing subject. All of our lecturers are active researchers, who conduct world-leading work and incorporate it into their teaching. In fact, over 87% of our mathematical sciences research outputs were judged as internationally excellent or world-leading (REF 2014), so you can be sure you’ll be learning in the most up-to-date settings. If you excel in your academic performance and wish to study further, you could take the opportunity to transfer from the BSc course onto our four-year integrated Master's in Mathematics programme.
