This course gives you the chance to build on the areas of mathematical science that you’re interested in by offering a wide variety of optional modules. Choose from topics such as financial mathematics, coding theory, and algebra and analysis.
You’ll gain a broad knowledge of the fundamentals of mathematics, as well as the skills to apply your knowledge to a variety of contexts. You’ll develop problem-solving skills, IT proficiency and research techniques, as well as learning about the ways maths might be used in the workplace.
You’re assessed through a variety of methods such as coursework, problem-solving case studies, essays, exams, group work in the form of oral presentation and written reports, an individual portfolio and a final dissertation.
Accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) for the purpose of meeting in part the educational requirement for chartered status.
What our students say
“I have decided to do this course because I love mathematics and this course has given me the opportunity to deepen this love. I am able to study modules that I enjoy with other students who share the same interests as me. There are friendly teachers, well-equipped labs and the library staff are very helpful and encourage me to explore more fields of mathematics.”
“At London Met I don’t feel as though I only study mathematics, I feel like I’m part of a community of people who share the passion I feel for the subject and the drive to do well. If I could give any advice to anyone thinking of joining the mathematics subject area at London Met it would be stop thinking and secure your place – you will never look back.”
After the course
You’ll graduate this course with skills in mathematics, statistics, operational research and IT – all of which are highly sought after by employers in a number of sectors. Our previous graduates have gone on to roles such as analysts and financial advisors.
You’ll also have the opportunity to study modules that are particularly relevant in the workplace, such as mathematical modelling, simulation and data mining.
This course is also excellent preparation for postgraduate study. Previous students have gone on to enrol on the PGCE in Secondary Mathematics Teaching course, and become secondary school teachers.
