The computing focus of this degree programme is complemented by its statistical content. In particular, systems building and software engineering are combined with statistical methods, probabilistic modelling and data analysis to give a computational approach to the use of statistics.
This degree provides a grounding in the techniques and principles commonly used by the professional statistician. It gives a firm foundation in the theoretical basis of these, but with an emphasis on application and the use of statistical software. Meanwhile, the computing element helps students to understand how computer systems are developed and offers training to design and build them. As a whole, the programme presents students with an opportunity to acquire the skills of a statistician, together with the ability to implement them on modern-day computer systems, a facility which is valued by most employers.
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 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.
Graduates are equipped for careers in market research, business analysis and forecasting, database design, business process modelling, statistical computing and software development

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
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.
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.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
