Mathematics is central to everyday life and to the way we see the world. It is an intellectual adventure in its own right but it is also used to understand the physical world - from gravitational waves to global warming - and to find solutions in business and industry. This programme covers a wide spectrum, including mathematical biology and scientific computing as well as applications closer to physics. You will study a number of courses involving numerical work with computers. BSc Applied Mathematics can be taken as a broad programme where you will study courses in other subjects in your first two years. These may be in related areas such as physics or informatics or from the wide and varied range offered across the University. It is also possible for well-prepared applicants to follow an accelerated programme in which you start in Year 2. You will concentrate on mathematics from the start and so will do few other subjects in your initial year. You will be supported with extra courses covering the key ideas in algebra, calculus and proofs and problem-solving from our first-year programme.
