Find out more about the TEF.

This course will give you a solid grounding in how mathematics and statistics, supported by IT solutions, are applied to a wide variety of problems encountered in the financial sector, industry, business and research organisations.

These studies will build a solid foundation in quantitative methods combined with an understanding of how to use mathematical and statistical applications. Finance modules are studied at each level to give the course its distinctive flavour. In the final year, you will have a chance to specialise in areas like operational research, multivariate analysis and data mining, corporate finance and international finance.

This degree has a very high academic and professional standing and the Applied Mathematics Department has been formally recognised for its high quality teaching, excellent resources and dedicated staff. The Department also boasts state-of-the-art facilities at its Byrom Street campus, with over 150 high performance computers and industry-standard software.

​We aim to improve your employability wherever possible on this course, which is why practical modules are introduced at every level. Most importantly, you can spend a sandwich year on a paid work placement to get a taste of what it's really like to work in industry.

The Department's strong links with over 450 local and national organisations mean that all of its courses are designed and developed to suit the needs of employers today, as well as creating excellent work placements for students. Currently we have close ties with IBM, Airbus, Vauxhall, Kellogg's, the NHS, The Ministry of Defence and Pfizer to name but a few.
