The School of Mathematics offers several courses based on a wide range of units. This allows movement between courses and gives great flexibility. All six Single Honours courses share the same first year (with some slight variation for those taking Mathematics with Study in Europe). This lays a firm foundation for your studies and informs your choice of units in later years. You can specialise from year two and choose from a rich variety of units: Some units - Financial Mathematics and Maths in Schools - are aimed at a very specific career path. Others, such as Probability 3 or Mechanics 3, offer advanced studies in familiar topics. Units such as Random Matrix Theory or Quantum Information allow the study of new and exciting topics that reflect our strong research base. You will be assigned a personal tutor who will guide you through your degree. Assessment will be by examination at the end of each year. If you are applying for deferred entry, please seek advice about maintaining your mathematical skills.
