Mathematics is one of the most fascinating and intellectually challenging subjects. It constantly develops the ways in which we live and think, as it plays a key role in most of today's scientific and technological advancements.

This programme will give you a sound knowledge of mathematics and its application to real-life situations and will build up your ability to analyse and solve problems. It will provide you with an opportunity to acquire skills, such as logical analysis, deduction, mathematical modelling and calculation, which are valued by employers.

In response to our students' increased interest in pursuing a career in teaching, we also offer courses such as Mathematics and Society and Mathematics, Education and Communication. The latter offers teaching experience through the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme. This encourages and nurtures a new generation of mathematicians and provides the opportunity to gain classroom experience as a final-year option.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide you with a comprehensive understanding of mathematical methods and techniques, and the ability to apply them to real-life problems
  • To develop your problem-solving and analytical skills
  • To provide you with experience of practical applications of mathematics, including mathematical modelling in various contexts
  • To give you training in the use of mathematical software and an understanding of the strengths and limitations of computers and other tools.
