With a good mixture of mathematics and its varying applications, this course has an emphasis on statistics, operational research and modelling. Alongside this, the flexible nature of our course means you can choose to take your studies to a more in-depth level or broaden your knowledge according to your interests. WHY STUDY THIS COURSE? This course is accredited by the Institution of Mathematics and Its Applications (IMA). It meets all of the educational requirements to become a Chartered Mathematician when it is followed by training and employment experience specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught Master's degrees. MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE The £100 million that the university has invested in its buildings and facilities over the past 10 years includes our brand-new technology learning centre, maths café, computing labs and award-winning university library. WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR? Mathematics is more than just arithmetic and if you have a head for numbers, then this could be your ideal course. SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE GAINED: On this course you will access modern computing facilities and use specialist mathematical and statistical computing packages. You can opt to do some volunteering and/or choose from a range of work placements to gain meaningful work experience and build up your employability skills. You can also apply to do an optional year-long placement in industry which will put you ahead of the field when applying for graduate jobs. AFTER THE COURSE Problem-solving is a key element to a successful business and mathematicians are welcomed in industry, business and commerce for their analytical ability and systematic, logical approach to unravelling complex issues.
This common first year provides you with a broad understanding of mathematics, statistics and computing and allows for you to change pathways come the end of the year. We try to make sure maximum use is made of relevant IT, mathematical and statistical computer packages and training on such systems will start in this year. By the second year your problem-solving skills will approach a more advanced level. Calculus and algebra are key topics which will be developed further and you will start to specialise through our selection of optional units. As well as your final year project, you will have a choice from a range of options on pure and applied mathematical topics.
Portsmouth is a vibrant waterfront city on the south coast with a rich maritime history. A flat and compact city, Portsmouth is easy to get around on foot or by bike and most University buildings are located in the centre. There is always plenty going on, whether in the bustle of the city centre or in the fresh air and open spaces of the seafront and the common.
