Mathematics

Let's study more than just theory. Let's study real world applications. 

Benefit from our Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) approved courses that offer a broad range of topics to study and the freedom to shape your degree to your interests and career aspirations.

Throughout our courses you’ll study the three areas of mathematics; pure, applied and statistics – as well as the chance to explore specialist areas such as cryptology, logic and mathematical biology. As you gain in-depth knowledge of mathematical theory you’ll also learn about its applications in the real world.

You will benefit from regular public seminars and guest speakers to broaden your knowledge in a variety of specialist topics, in addition to opportunities with local schools to gain valuable classroom experience if you are considering a teaching career.

The transferable skills you’ll acquire during your time with us are highly prized by future employers – from analytical thinking to problem solving, communication, teamworking and intellectual rigour. At the end of your course, you’ll be ready for a thriving career with endless possibilities in fields such, but not limited to, finance, banking, insurance, business consultancy, operational research, IT industries and engineering, or education.
