BSc (Hons) Mathematics

Whether it’s making a mobile phone secure, helping an endangered species survive, or analysing a successful business, maths is key. Almost all areas of human activity or advanced technologies need mathematics, so the demand for mathematicians continues to grow.

This Mathematics degree will give you a solid grounding in the methods of modern applied mathematics, and bring out the intrinsic beauty of mathematical ideas. You’ll become an expert in logical thinking and develop refined problem-solving skills that employers in many fields value highly.

This course has been accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications – the professional society for qualified and practising mathematicians. This means that on graduation, you will be one step closer to achieving chartered status.

Progress to an integrated Masters course

This course is also offered through a combined Bachelors and Masters level study package – MMath. With just one additional year of full-time study, you’ll gain greater breadth and depth of mathematics skills and techniques relevant to practicing mathematicians. You’ll study advanced topics in applicable mathematics, statistics and pure mathematics – giving you the best chance of landing your dream job after graduation.

You can opt to initially enrol on the undergraduate Bachelors Honours degree, and progress to MMath if you achieve satisfactory grades in your assessments during your first two years of study. Alternatively, you can apply for direct entry to the MMath course, which is ideal if you know you want to study at postgraduate level.
