First you will establish a strong foundation in a wide range of mathematics topics, such as calculus, linear algebra, probability and mathematical modelling. Some of the material you study will follow on naturally from A level courses, while other topics, such as analysis, are completely new and conceptually challenging. In your second year you will go on to study abstract algebra and differential equations in depth, alongside complex analysis and fluid mechanics. You will also have the chance to tailor your studies and begin to specialise in pure or applied mathematics. Or you could mix your topics with a range of modules such as statistics or environmental modelling. There is also the opportunity to broaden your studies beyond mathematics. As your studies progress, you will have the flexibility to choose from a substantial range of fascinating and challenging options. These currently include Fluid Dynamics; Mathematical Biology; Dynamical Meteorology; Statistical Mechanics; Learning and Teaching of Mathematics; Financial Mathematics; History of Mathematics; Cryptography; Galois Theory; Topology; Mathematical Logic; Mathematical Modelling; and Advanced Statistics. You will have the opportunity to complete an individual project. This allows you to study a topic of your choice in depth, with the careful guidance of a faculty member. Recent topics have included knot theory, tsunami propagation, surreal numbers and infinite graphs. Alongside many other opportunities during your degree, your project is an ideal opportunity to develop key employability skills with independent, self-directed study and research. Due to our flexible degree structure, it may be possible for you to transfer between any of our degree programmes, including the four-year integrated Master of Mathematics (MMath), subject to strong academic performance.
