Overview
Many recent discoveries are due to the ingenuity of mathematicians, from the invention of the internet to the creation of Facebook to GCHQ operations that save thousands of lives. This mathematics degree will train you to study advanced areas of mathematics and apply them to diverse problems. You'll gain experience in problem solving with an emphasis on industry applications and graduate with the skills and knowledge to advance into diverse careers such as finance and insurance, data science, education, and computing.

Why study BSc/MMath Mathematics at Middlesex University?
This specialist degree develops vital communication skills in a variety of forms (written, web-based, presentation and group working), ensuring you can explain complex maths to a range of audiences. It will also ensure that when you graduate you do so with an excellent grounding in a range of areas of mathematics, and with the skills and competencies to work in the numerous areas where mathematics is applied or into mathematics research.

You will study the broad spectrum of pure maths (algebra, calculus, geometry and logic) and the application of these to a number of areas. Key modules like Problem Solving Methods will help you to develop your ability to solve complex mathematical problems and relate theory to practice. A weekly Engaging in Mathematics session allows you to experience maths in its various forms in an informal setting. Sessions include external speakers, activity sessions, and employability skills development.

This degree is the perfect training for a diversity of careers. In addition to the skills developed as a mathematician employers require graduates with expert communication skills and that's why our course offers a unique model of communications training: 'Communicating Mathematics' trains you to convey complex mathematical language to a number of different audiences in a way that is accessible.

If you apply for our four-year MMath course (which offers advanced study options in disciplines such as financial maths and high level pure maths) you will gain a masters qualification when you successfully complete your undergraduate degree. And, if you apply in Year 1, you can receive funding to cover your postgraduate course fees.
