Pure mathematics is one of the most timeless and international disciplines in existence. It is both ancient and modern and forms the foundations upon which the modern world is built.
Contemporary science and business are underpinned by pure mathematics, and our degrees reflect a connection with the real world of industry.
This three-year BSc degree covers a broad base of classical and modern mathematics. It covers a range of material including pure mathematics, applied mathematics and mathematics for finance.
You can progress to focus on one aspect of the subject, or continue to cover a breadth of material.
