Brunel University London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Brunel’s Department of Mathematics focuses on equipping you with a wealth of mathematical knowledge and understanding that you can apply to the worlds of science, technology, business or wherever else your interests lie. Mathematics is a fundamental subject that is constantly developing and a discipline in its own right. It supplies the theory behind countless commercial, industrial and technological activities. Mathematical models underpin engineering, the applied sciences, computing and many aspects of management. On our programmes, you’ll develop in-depth knowledge and understanding as well as excellent study skills that will be hugely valuable whatever career path you follow after graduation.
You can select our general Mathematics course or opt for one of the specialist pathways. We also offer two four-year MMath programmes – these become five years if you decide to do a year’s work placement. If you are not sure which programme to follow, that’s fine. You’ll have the chance to change after the course starts. Once you are at Brunel, you can explore what works best for you. You’ll be taught in small groups of about 20 students for the first few weeks of Level 1 to help you to adapt to the demands of university study. Extra support is available if you start to fall behind. Lectures will provide a broad overview of key concepts and ideas, giving you a framework for more in-depth study. You’ll also work in small group tutorials on mathematics-related problems with guidance from a member of staff.
Studying Mathematics at Brunel means you’ll be working with staff who are internationally recognised for their subject knowledge. Our Mathematics BSccourses will develop your knowledge, understanding and expertise in a range of mathematical methods, giving you a broad understanding of mathematics at an advanced level. You’ll study many aspects of pure and applied mathematics alongside general concepts of mathematical modelling. This course will develop skills you can use across a range of industries and, with its focus on group and project work, you’ll be well prepared for the world of work. In Level 1 you’ll undertake three projects on topics that illustrate some of the diverse applications of mathematics to the real world. In Level 3, you’ll produce a substantial research project under the guidance of a tutor.
To help you get ready for work, we run popular employability skills workshops for all students. Topics include CV writing, job applications and cover letters and testing centres. You can also attend talks by former students and employers on how to succeed in the job market. Our graduates have gone on to careers with companies including Accenture, IBM, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Bank of New York, Coca Cola, and the BBC.
