Overview

Mathematical training develops specific skills and broad analytical expertise, which are valued across all professions. There is also a particular demand for graduates who not only have quantitative skills, but also know how to use them.

This course delivers that sought-after combination – through their teaching style, and our focus on real-world applications of both mathematical and statistical techniques. For example, you’ll use the mathematics computing laboratories as an integral part of your learning process, making your study as much experimental as theoretical.

Computing Science and Mathematics division provides a stimulating and supportive learning environment, and they’ve a strong and active research group. Its primary interest is the application of mathematics to biology, economics and life sciences.

Stirling is a hub for conservation and environmental organisations. It’s a superb place to study Environmental Science. They were one of the first UK universities to introduce an Environmental Science degree and their course is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences.

You’ll gain a scientific grounding and relevant, employable and in-demand skills. Specialist skills modules are included in each semester of our course, and regular careers sessions are embedded into core teaching. Field training is a fundamental element that includes field courses in the UK and international destinations.
