If you're interested in developing your mathematical talents and learning how to apply mathematics and statistics to real life problems, then this degree programme will give you an enjoyable route to becoming a mathematics graduate. It focuses on showing you how to apply a range of mathematical and statistical tools in order to get results, as well as learning to articulate how you have come to your conclusion. Our degree also includes the use of modern software and training on how to present your work professionally.

The university’s strong research culture feeds into the programme, together with direct feedback from employers about the skills that they want our graduates to develop. These combine to ensure that you gain the most relevant up-to-date knowledge and skills on which to build your career.

Our approach works well with our students and employers, and we have a legacy of success in the National Student Survey: scoring 94% student satisfaction in 2015, as well as 93%, 100%, 93% and 97% in the four years before that!

In your final year, you can specialise in areas such as financial mathematics, cryptography, medical statistics or fluid dynamics and can dig even deeper with a specialist project. Recent specialist projects have investigated the volatility of shares, ocean modelling, kidney transplant survival data, Bayesian modelling of Premier League results, etc.

In addition, you’ll have the option of a work-based placement year in industry or to study abroad at one of our partner institutions, enabling you to develop additional personal and professional skills.
