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
During your studies you will have the freedom to focus on areas of mathematics that most interest to you, and explore new and exciting topics that you may never have encountered before. The fourth year allows you to specialise in your preferred area of mathematics, including a dissertation, in which you can explore a topic at the cutting edge of mathematical research under the guidance of one of our academic staff. This course is fully accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and, with the right module choices, you may choose to obtain the MMath Mathematics with Statistics degree, which is accredited by The Royal Statistical Society.
In your first year you will study core mathematics, which provides the foundations for your later studies, together with more specialist material in the three main subject areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and probability and statistics. In your second year you will choose from a range of optional modules and typically continue to study two of the three main mathematical subject areas. In your third and fourth years you will choose from a wide range of advanced optional modules, specialising in your preferred area of mathematics. You may also, if you wish, choose to receive your degree in Mathematics (Pure Mathematics), Mathematics (Applied Mathematics) or Mathematics with Statistics, according to your specialisation.
