Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
First you will establish a strong foundation in a wide range of mathematics topics, such as calculus, linear algebra, probability and mathematical modelling. Some of the material you study will follow on naturally from A level courses, while other topics, such as analysis, are completely new and conceptually challenging. In your second year you will go on to study abstract algebra and differential equations in depth, alongside complex analysis and fluid mechanics. You will also have the chance to tailor your studies and begin to specialise in pure or applied mathematics. Or you could mix your topics with a range of modules such as statistics or environmental modelling. There is also the opportunity to broaden your studies beyond mathematics. As your studies progress, you will have the flexibility to choose from a substantial range of fascinating and challenging options. These currently include Fluid Dynamics; Mathematical Biology; Dynamical Meteorology; Statistical Mechanics; Learning and Teaching of Mathematics; Financial Mathematics; History of Mathematics; Cryptography; Galois Theory; Topology; Mathematical Logic; Mathematical Modelling; and Advanced Statistics. You will have the opportunity to complete an individual project. This allows you to study a topic of your choice in depth, with the careful guidance of a faculty member. Recent topics have included knot theory, tsunami propagation, surreal numbers and infinite graphs. Alongside many other opportunities during your degree, your project is an ideal opportunity to develop key employability skills with independent, self-directed study and research. Due to our flexible degree structure, it may be possible for you to transfer between any of our degree programmes, including the four-year integrated Master of Mathematics (MMath), subject to strong academic performance.
In Year 1 you will study a range of compulsory topics which will provide you with a strong foundation in a number of maths topics such as calculus, set theory and complex numbers. While some topics will follow on from your A-Level studies, other topics will be completely new. As your studies progress, you will be able to choose from a range of modules such as Combinatorics, Mathematical Biology and the History of Mathematics. You will also have the chance to complete an individual project of your choice with the guidance and support of a faculty member.
With a wonderfully diverse range of courses and superb extra-curricular clubs and societies run by one of the most dynamic student unions in the country, UEA is a great place to both live and learn. Located in the beautiful city of Norwich it becomes no wonder UEA is consistently one of the best universities for student satisfaction.
