University of Nottingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This course covers many exciting elements of mathematics, from abstract ideas of algebra and number theory to the mathematical modelling of biological phenomena. During your studies you will have the freedom to focus on areas of mathematics that are of most interest to you, and explore new and exciting topics that you may never have encountered before. This course is fully accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and, with the right module choices, you may choose to obtain the BSc Mathematics with Statistics degree. Furthermore, you will have access to outstanding facilities to enhance your studies during your time at Nottingham.
In your first year you will study core mathematics, which provides the foundations for your later studies, together with more specialist material in the three main subject areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and probability and statistics. In your second year you will choose from a range of optional modules and will typically continue to study two of the three main mathematical subject areas. In your third year you will choose from a wide range of advanced optional modules, one of which may be an individual project or involve group project work. You may also choose to specialise in one of the three main subject areas, receiving your degree in Mathematics (Pure Mathematics), Mathematics (Applied Mathematics) or Mathematics with Statistics.
