Statistics is used widely in business and management for informed decision-making, and you will have the opportunity to specialise in advanced statistics and probability. You will combine six mathematics or statistics modules with two business management modules each year. In your second and final years, you will have some flexibility in your choice of mathematics modules. Mathematics is concerned with finding patterns and solving problems. Every day we encounter patterns, which can be described using mathematics, for example, in numbers, shapes or data. We can use mathematics to identify these patterns, solve problems, inspire new technologies and make informed decisions. Mathematics is for people who are prepared to think logically and creatively and then explain those thoughts precisely. It is a demanding discipline: finding patterns and solving problems isn’t always easy, but discovering the correct answer to a difficult problem is very rewarding. At university, you will discover a new world of concepts and ideas. You will encounter new kinds of mathematical objects and investigate their common features and abstract natures. But it is not all abstract: our statistics and finance modules are very much about the real world – you will use mathematical skills to extract information from data and draw conclusions.
