Develop skills in mathematics and software development, preparing you for roles that involve computational analysis, modelling and simulation.

Computer science and mathematics are closely linked. Many of the leading applications of computing are mathematical and computers are fundamentally logic engines.

This joint degree course is for you if you enjoy and excel at computing but want to combine that with a very strong interest in mathematics.

In the first two years, you’ll study a mix of mathematics and computing units, including computational approaches to finding patterns in data and the generation of computational models. You will also share lectures with Mathematical Sciences students to study fundamental algebra and mathematical analysis. In the final year, you can choose to specialise in areas of numerical computer science and mathematics.

Computer scientists with good mathematical knowledge are in great demand worldwide. On graduation, you can apply what you’ve learnt to roles in software development that rely on a combination of mathematical and computational modelling, such as data analysis and forecasting.

The Master of Computing (MComp) course provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the BSc but with a special exposure to research topics and methods.

Qualification requirements

Qualification Offer Further information
UCAS Tariff Not accepted
A level A*AA A*AA in three A levels including Mathematics and Further Mathematics

If you are studying A levels we strongly prefer that you take a full A level in Further Mathematics. Alternative offers are available if you have only studied Further Mathematics at AS level or have not studied it at all. If you are taking a GCE A level in a science subject, you will need to pass any separate science practical endorsement.

Alternative Offer:
AAA in three A levels including Mathematics and Further Mathematics plus one of:

grade A in an EPQ
grade B in the Welsh Baccalaureate Skills Challenge Certificate

If you receive an offer for this course and are studying one of these qualifications you will be given both the typical and alternative offer. If you are taking a GCE A level in a science subject, you will need to pass any separate science practical endorsement.

Alternative Offer:
A* in three A levels including A in Mathematics plus A in AS Further Mathematics plus grade 2 in any STEP, a Merit in the GCE AEA in Mathematics or a suitable score in the MAT.

Alternative Offer:
A*AA in three A levels including A* in Mathematics and A in a second scientific or quantitative subject plus grade 2 in any STEP, Merit in the GCE AEA in Mathematics or a suitable score in the MAT.
Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (first teaching from September 2016) Not accepted
Access to HE Diploma Not accepted
Cambridge International Pre-U Certificate - Principal D2, D3, D3 D2, D3, D3 in three principal subjects including Mathematics and Further Mathematics.

Alternative offer:
D3, D3, D3 in three principal subjects including Mathematics and Further Mathematics plus one of:

grade M1 in Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives
grade A in an EPQ
grade B in the Welsh Baccalaureate Skills Challenge Certificate

If you receive an offer for this course and are studying one of these qualifications you will be given both the typical and alternative offer.
International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme 36 points 36 points overall and 7, 6, 6 in three Higher Level subjects including Mathematics.
Scottish Advanced Higher AA AA in Advanced Highers including Mathematics.

We make offers based on Advanced Highers. You will typically be expected to have completed five Scottish Highers and your grades in these will be considered as part of your application. We prefer applicants who have achieved AAAAA in their Highers.

GSCE requirements: GCSE English grade C or 4.

For further qualifications information and English Language equivalents, please see: go.bath.ac.uk/comp-sci-maths

Combinations of qualifications Typical offer
Your application will be considered individually based on the particular combination of qualifications and subjects that you are taking.

We can consider combinations of accepted qualifications, such as A levels and a BTEC.

We may be able to consider combinations of qualifications that include an AS level rather than an A level in Further Mathematics. You will likely be required to obtain a grade 2 in any STEP or Merit in the GCE AEA in Mathematics. Please contact us to discuss your profile.

AA in A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, plus D in the BTEC Subsidiary Diploma (QCF)/National Extended Certificate (RQF) OR the Cambridge Technical Introductory Diploma (QCF)/Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate (RQF)
AA in two A level subjects plus grade D3 in a Pre-U principal subject including Mathematics and Further Mathematics
AA in A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, plus A in the LIBF Level 3 Diploma in Financial Studies (DipFS)
We can also consider combinations that are not listed and that do not include A levels. You should read the information about essential and preferred subjects and subject combinations. We cannot consider different qualifications in the same subject area.
