Through this course, you’ll build your knowledge, understanding and expertise in a range of mathematical methods, and develop the career-focused, transferable skills that employers are looking for. You’ll learn to use mathematical reasoning in a variety of contexts and apply your knowledge in problem-solving situations.
You’ll begin by studying the fundamentals of mathematics, such as calculus and linear algebra, and proofs and structures. As the course goes on, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in your areas of interest such as cryptography and coding, the mathematics of infinity and financial modelling.
You’ll be assessed through tests, exams, essays, individual and group research projects, and a final year dissertation. You’ll receive regular, supportive feedback throughout the course.
This course is accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) as meeting in part the educational requirement for chartered status.
What our students say
“At London Met I don’t feel as though I only study mathematics, I feel I’m part of a community of people who share my passion and 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.”
“I 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. Friendly teachers, well-equipped labs and the library are very helpful and encourage me to explore more fields of mathematics.”
After the course
This degree will prepare you for a career in not just mathematics but in a number of fields where a good head for numbers is essential. You could go on to work in the computing, finance, scientific research and development or statistical industries to name but a few.
Many of our previous graduates have gone on to complete a PGCE in Secondary Mathematics and become mathematics teachers or tutors. Others have found work in related fields, such as international analysis and reporting at Time Inc UK, and accounting at Brackman Chopra LLP.
