If you’re curious about numbers and how they’re used practically in the ‘real world’, a Mathematics BSc can lead you down many career paths. Mathematics is an ancient subject which, from its earliest days, has underpinned much of daily life, in finance, commerce, science, technology, engineering and even philosophy – from understanding the structure of the universe and predicting earthquakes to interpreting error-correcting codes on digital devices and enabling us to stream music and video. Mathematics has shaped our view of the world, used by physicists, engineers, statisticians, analysts and economists as a tool to model real world situations to find new and novel solutions to problems. One of the top 15 universities in the country in Guardian University Guide 2018, Coventry has a long tradition of teaching mathematics with a strong emphasis on its applications in practical situations. Accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), this course meets the educational requirements towards gaining Chartered Mathematician status, the first of two stages to do so. You can focus on specialist areas of mathematics, such as statistics or physics, and it is possible to combine your studies with our Initial Teacher Training programme in secondary schools.
