Gain a broad and balanced foundation of theory and practical skills in mathematics with a particular focus on statistics. This course is for you if you would like to study statistics but have a significant interest in mathematics. You’ll be trained how to analyse problems and interpret patterns in data to make careful predictions about the future. In the first year you’ll gain an introduction to university-level mathematics and statistics before focussing more on statistics in the second year. In the final year you’ll choose from a wide range of optional units to match the areas you’d like to specialise in. These units are available across pure mathematics, applied mathematics and probability and statistics. As with all of our mathematics courses you will have the option to switch after the first year, so you can keep your options open when you apply. You’ll develop solid logical, analytical and practical problem-solving skills sought by employers. This broad knowledge and set of skills will prepare you not only for technical roles, but nonspecialist careers such as computing, financial services and management as well.
