The mathematical studies course shares many common features with the mathematics programme, the main difference being the amount of time spent on subjects outside mathematics. The course is primarily a mathematics degree and around two-thirds of your degree will be in mathematics modules. For the remaining one third of your degree there is the freedom to take electives from the wide range available across the University of Leeds.Mathematical studies is an interesting and fun programme, which offers real satisfaction in solving a challenging mathematical problem, or mastering a deep mathematical theory. It will also provide you with a range of transferable and specific skills to help you in your future career.Our graduates go on to a variety of careers, including teaching, but many also find work in the well-paid financial management sector.

Year 1: An introduction to all the main areas of mathematics; some subjects (like calculus) follow on from A-level, others start from scratch to allow for different A-level syllabuses; there are 8 core mathematics modules and students may take up to 4 subjects outside mathematics. Year 2: There is a small core of compulsory subjects, but essentially students are free to specialise in those areas that are of interest the most; many 2nd-year courses are prerequisites for later modules, so students can start to build their own degree; the options continue for study outside mathematics. Year 3: Complete freedom to choose from about 60 modules; again, students can spend up to a 3rd of their time on their non-mathematical speciality.
