Mathematics is essential to modern society, from the development of new technologies to the numerical modelling of financial systems.
This fascinating subject will appeal to anyone who enjoys problem-solving and wants to hone their analytical skills. Additionally, there is a shortage of mathematics skills in the UK and therefore this knowledge is highly prized by employers.
We offer a wide range of courses, so you can study mathematics as a single honours degree or combine it with other subjects such as economics, statistics, computer science or even psychology. Our degrees contain numerous optional modules, so you'll be able to tailor your course to match your interests.
Our staff have a breadth of experience in research and consultancy in the UK and overseas, and you will benefit from our diverse areas of expertise. Our single honours courses offer around 20 hours of contact time per week, and all mathematics courses include small group problem-solving tutorials to support you in your transition to university-level study. Furthermore, our courses are designed with employability in mind, and feature a module that aims to develop your transferable skills.
