Mathematics is the universal language unifying many aspects of our lives. Whether it’s making mobile phones secure, predicting the weather, optimising investments in financial markets or helping an endangered species survive, mathematics is key.
Our world is becoming increasingly data-driven, so the demand for mathematicians with expertise in handling and interpreting data continues to grow.
Accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the professional society for qualified and practising mathematicians, this maths degree provides a solid grounding in the methods of modern mathematics and will uncover the intrinsic beauty of mathematical ideas.
Our lecturers will provide you with a supportive environment during your studies allowing you to focus on fulfilling your potential. You’ll become an expert in logical thinking and develop refined problem-solving skills, which are highly valued by employers. This maths course will equip you with the skills to pursue a career in industry, government institutions, academia, or the teaching profession.
The first year of your Maths degree will provide you with a firm and broad foundation in a range of mathematical areas by extending the material you encountered in core modules at A-level. As well as being introduced to specialist mathematical software, you’ll begin to apply mathematics to determine solutions to a range of real-world problems.
In subsequent years, you can specialise in areas of mathematics that best suit your interests and career aspirations. These include codes, cryptography, nonlinear systems, mathematical biology, financial mathematics, statistics, operational research, partial differential equations and financial modelling. In the third year of the Maths course, you are also able to take a teaching-based module that includes a school placement or you can study a project under the supervision of a lecturer. Recent projects have even been published in international mathematical journals.
