University of Bath has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Gain specialist knowledge in pure and/or applied mathematics, preparing you for a variety of technical and non-specialised careers.
Mathematics underlies all the physical sciences and is increasingly involved in biological sciences, social sciences and management. It is needed to make quantitative predictions from scientific theories.
You’ll specialise in pure and/or applied mathematics whilst having the option to study units in statistics, computing, physics, and economics. As with all of our mathematics courses you will have the option to switch after the first year, so you can keep your options open when you apply.
You’ll develop the specialist skills and knowledge for a technical career as well as receiving good training in analytical thinking. This combination of skills and knowledge means you will also be well-suited to non-specialist careers such as computing, financial services and management.
If you want a more in-depth study experience, you could consider applying for our MMath Mathematics course.
You’ll learn from academics with expertise in different areas of mathematical sciences, including algebra and geometry, analysis, applied and interdisciplinary mathematics, numerical analysis and scientific computing, statistics and probability. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.
You’ll be able to access our Maths and Statistics Help (MASH) centre to get help with revision, tests and coursework. 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.
You’ll also be supported during your studies by regular small group tutorials and one-to-one meetings with a Personal Tutor.
You’ll be able to go into a wide variety of careers including in the finance sector as an accountant, actuary or analyst, as a statistician in government or teaching. You’ll also be well suited to roles developing software 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.
