Awarded by: Northumbria University Newcastle
If you're interested in developing your mathematical talents and learning how to apply mathematics and statistics to real life problems, then this degree 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 course, 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.
We’re particularly proud of our high performance in the NSS (National Student Survey), steadily performing well above national averages.
Your first two years will offer fundamental knowledge in mathematics and statistics, then you’ll specialise your studies through a choice of optional modules such as financial mathematics, cryptography, medical statistics or fluid dynamics among others.
This integrated undergraduate course is underpinned by our research strengths in areas of applied mathematics and in your final year you will have the opportunity to do a substantial piece of research in areas such as biomathematics, classical and quantum dynamical systems, symmetries and integrable systems, magnetohydrodynamics and nonlinear waves.
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.
