Mathematics and Biology

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. In this programme, you will follow a custom-tailored selection of mathematics courses, reflecting the current drive towards quantification in biology. Concurrently, you will specialise in one of two biological areas (evolutionary or systems biology), which reflect an organism-based or a cell-based approach to biology, respectively. Our latest teaching review commended us for delivering a high quality teaching and learning experience, with clear support for students throughout their studies. Our graduates go on to rewarding careers in many different areas or to further studies at universities across the world. The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 rated 85 per cent of our research in Pure Mathematics as 4*, world-leading, or 3*, internationally excellent. Our strengths in research inform our teaching.
