Mathematics and Statistics

This very flexible single honours degree programme is particularly for you if you expect to use statistics in your future professional work. You will develop the capacity to formulate and analyse problems and to interpret scientific evidence using appropriate statistical methodology. A core of basic mathematics, probability and statistics provides you with the fundamental knowledge and skills, and the basis for more advanced work later on. The core material is covered in the first three semesters, up to the mid-point of your second year. You develop your capacity to learn and apply mathematical and statistical ideas, to understand the significance and power of mathematics, and to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of those topics that any employer would expect of a Mathematics and Statistics graduate. After your first three semesters, you choose your lecture courses from a widening range of options in order that you can pursue those areas which most interest you. In the final year at least half of your module choices will be in probability and statistics. You can choose to do a final year project instead of a lecture course on an appropriate topic supervised by a member of the academic staff. We also offer a pathway in finance through the Mathematics and Statistics degree programme. The first three semesters are the same as above but, in the final half of your degree, there are a few modules in financial mathematics and financial statistics that you must take. There is also the opportunity to choose one or two designated Business and Management modules at level two which may then be continued and built upon at level three.
