Mathematics is important to the modern world. All quantitative science, including both physical and social sciences, is based on it. It provides the theoretical framework for physical science, statistics and data analysis as well as computer science. Our programme reflects this diversity and the excitement generated by new discoveries within mathematics.This programme, studied over four years, is for students who want to specialise in statistics, perhaps with a view to a career as a statistician. It shares a common core of Mathematics at Stage 1, and then moves on to cover abstract, analytical and computational techniques that give you the opportunity to specialise in areas such as non-linear differential equations, computational algebra and geometry, financial mathematics, forecasting, design and analysis of experiments, inference and stochastic processes. You spend a year working in industry between Stages 2 and 3. We can offer help and advice in finding a placement.
