Overview

Degree-level maths is about finding ways to answer big questions. This course will allow you to specialise in statistics, while continuing to develop your general mathematical knowledge.

You’ll learn data analysis and computing skills and will have the opportunity to apply your skills in project work.

The course includes statistics, probability, core mathematics, pure mathematics and applied mathematics, with increasing emphasis on statistics and probability as you progress.
