You will study a wide range of topics, covering pure mathematics, applied mathematics, probability and statistics. The first year covers essential fundamentals, while in the second and final years you will be able to choose from the exceptionally wide range of modules that reflect our research strengths. Whether you want to specialise in statistics, finance, pure or applied mathematics, our wide range of modules will provide you with the opportunity to do so. 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.
