Description

This degree programme allows students to study topics from the areas of mathematics, statistics and computing, and leads to a wide range of career options. It provides students with a solid foundation in the three areas, enabling them to expand knowledge and skills in the field that best suits their strengths and interests, as well as enhancing their employment opportunities on graduation. The opportunities to either specialise or to broaden out increase as the degree progresses, and in the final year students may select courses from a wide range of options. These include many of our other degrees in statistics and mathematics. For the computing part of the degree, students take courses onadvanced algorithms and numerical methods and software for partial differential equations.

In response to increased interest by students wishing to pursue a career in teaching, we have developed new final-year courses, including Mathematics in Society, Issues in Mathematics Education, and the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme. In particular, the Ambassador Scheme aims to encourage and nurture a new generation of mathematicians and gives students the opportunity to gain classroom experience as one of their final-year options.

Career options

Graduates can find employment as programmers in accountancy and banking, statisticians in insurance, software engineers or mathematical modellers in industry. There are also opportunities in academic and industrial research, banking, actuarial work and management. In addition, there is a national shortage of mathematics teachers, and careers in education are possible.

English Language Requirements

To study at this university, you have to speak English. We advice you to

take an IELTS test.
More About IELTS

Requirements

Applicants should have:

200 UCAS points

FROM A-levels or equivalent

INCLUDING at least 60 points from a mathematical subject studied to A-level or equivalent.

PLUS GCSEs at grade C or above (including English and mathematics) or equivalent qualifications.

Language skills

If English is not your first language, you will need to provide proof of your fluency in English before you can begin a programme. The main systems for measuring this are IELTS with a minimum score of 6.0 for degree programmes or TOEFL with a minimum score of 550 for degree programmes. Recently the TOEFL computer-based test has been abolished to make way for the introduction of the Internet-based test, gradually eliminating the traditional paper-based method. Other qualifications may be satisfactory. We can tell you what is acceptable.

Work Experience

No work experience is required.

Accreditation

This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught masters degrees.
