Degree Overview

We know you love maths. So our courses are built on the research expertise of our world-leading mathematicians. And we know you care about your career. So we rapidly adapt what we teach to reflect the fast-moving graduate employment market.

In the first year you’ll study a mixture of pure & applied maths and statistics, setting you up to create the degree that you want. Small group tutorials help to bridge the gap between school and university and develop your problem-solving skills.

In the second year you build on this base, moving into advanced topics like analysis, number theory, numerical methods and statistical modelling.

In your final year you get to choose. You can specialise in highly academic topics which typically include: topology, complex analysis, non-linear systems and quantum mechanics. You can look at application areas such as machine learning, games & strategy and finance. Or if you prefer, you can do a bit of both.

As you progress, you can tailor your degree to your interests through our optional modules. You can also take a project module and, under supervision, research a current topic.
