If you’re interested in developing your mathematical talents and learning how to apply mathematics and statistics to real life problems, then this degree will give you an enjoyable route to becoming a mathematics graduate. It focuses on showing you how to apply a range of mathematical and statistical tools in order to get results, as well as learning to articulate how you have come to your conclusion. Our degree also includes the use of modern software and training on how to present your work professionally.

The university’s strong research culture feeds into the course, together with direct feedback from employers about the skills that they want our graduates to develop. These combine to ensure that you gain the most relevant up-to-date knowledge and skills on which to build your career.

We’re particularly proud of our high performance in the NSS (National Student Survey), steadily performing well above national averages.

Your first two years will offer fundamental knowledge in mathematics and statistics, then you’ll specialise your studies through a choice of optional modules such as financial mathematics, cryptography, medical statistics or fluid dynamics among others.

This integrated undergraduate course is underpinned by our research strengths in areas of applied mathematics and in your final year you will have the opportunity to do a substantial piece of research in areas such as biomathematics, classical and quantum dynamical systems, symmetries and integrable systems, magnetohydrodynamics and nonlinear waves.

In addition, you’ll have the option of a work-based placement year in industry or to study abroad at one of our partner institutions, enabling you to develop additional personal and professional skills

Programme structure

Your course in brief

Year 1

You will study core modules in Calulus, Modelling, Computational Mathematics, Dynamics, Statistics and Algebra and Analysis.

Year 2

In year two you will undertake modules in Further Computational Mathematics, Applied Statistical Methods, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations, Vector Calculus and Further Dynamics, Applied Modelling and Operational Research.

Year 3

You will have the option to go out on an industrial placement to put the skills you have learned in the previous modules into professional practice, or on study abroad.

Year 4

In the fourth year you will study modules such as Financial Mathematics, Advanced Mathematical Modelling, Mathematical Cryptology, Fluid Dynamics, Dynamic Systems, Advanced Statistical Methods, Medica Statistics and Complex Analysis. You will also undertake a major Investigative Project in a topic of your choice.

Year 5

You will study modules such as Bayesian Statistics, Time Series and Forecasting, Linear and Non Linear Waves, Numerical Solutions of PDEs and Research Methods and Professional Practice. A major aspect of this year is to complete a Masters project in a relevant subject area of your choice.

Career opportunities

We’ll place great emphasis on supporting you to develop the knowledge and skills that employers value the most, including transferable skills such as creative thinking while applying structure to complex problems, communication, analysis and IT.

Mathematics graduates are highly sought after in a variety of sectors, both in the UK and internationally, including the financial sector and public sector, as well as in commerce, industry and teaching.

Our graduates have found employment in the banking, retail, manufacturing and teaching sectors, including BAE Systems, Department of Work and Pensions, GlaxoSmithKline, Northumbrian Water, London Transport System, Nissan, as well as advancing to postgraduate study.
