Student goals

The School of Mathematics and Statistics aspires to be an inclusive and welcoming environment for all who enjoy mathematics.

We believe that our students should be:


Students are keen to explore mathematics and statistics as an open-ended endeavour, not merely searching for 'the right answer'.


Students can use logic and reasoning to construct rigorous mathematical and statistical arguments.


Students can convey mathematical arguments to others, and can explain what it means to be a mathematician and statistician.


Students feel welcomed regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, age, religious belief and disability.


Students and staff work together and support each other, both academically and personally.
