Mathematics and Statistics courses
Our range of courses stretches from our core MMath and BSc Mathematics degrees, to specialist degrees that train you to apply your mathematical skills in specific sectors of the graduate job market. You also have the option to spend a year studying abroad, or completing a work placement as part of your degree.
On all of our courses, you'll cover a range of topics across pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and probability and statistics. Some courses have more compulsory modules, so that you can develop specialist knowledge, but there is always freedom to focus on the topics that interest you the most, to suit your chosen career.
These courses are based and mainly taught here in the School of Mathematics and Statistics.
