Undergraduate degrees

Mathematics plays a fundamental role in modern society, underpinning everything from smart phones and the internet to engineering and architecture. Equally, mathematics can be fascinatingly abstract. Mathematics graduates are highly numerate problem-solvers who can think logically and laterally. The universal nature of a mathematics degree means the skills you develop are valued in a diverse range of sectors.

Our degrees

Our internationally-renowned research groups work across pure, applied and financial mathematics and statistics. Our single honours mathematics courses allow you to benefit from the breadth and depth of our research through the wide range of innovative modules and projects available to you.

We work closely with our leading Business School. These degrees are co-taught by both schools, and give you the knowledge and transferable skills needed to succeed in business:

We also frequently collaborate with other schools and departments within the University. With these degrees, you will explore the connections and interactions between mathematics and other subjects:

Our reputation

We're a top 20 university for Mathematics in the Guardian university league tables 2020 and The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019. 

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, we were ranked in the top 10 in the UK for Mathematics for the quality of our research. Our research feeds directly into our teaching, which means students will learn about the latest developments within their subject from world-class academics.

Research-based degrees

We have an active research environment which enables us to offer exciting courses taught by experts who are leaders in their fields. The range and scope of our research is extensive, allowing us to offer a wide variety of course modules that span the branches of mathematics.

Flexible degrees

All of our courses give you the option of studying abroad for a year or undertaking an industrial placement. It is possible to switch between the BSc and MMath versions of our courses up until the end of your second year.

Industry-relevant courses

Our External Advisory Board helps ensure our courses are up-to-date with modern practices and techniques. Several of our courses are accredited by the Royal Statistical Society, meaning you’ll graduate with the knowledge and technical skills required of statisticians.

Exceptional student support

You’ll be guided through your course by your personal tutor who’ll provide academic and pastoral support. Our student support team is based within our School and helps with anything from academic advice to timetabling and project submission enquiries.

Rewarding careers

95% of our recent graduates are employed or in further study within six months of graduating (latest Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2016/17). Recent graduate destinations include Lloyds Banking Group, Ernst and Young, IBM and Aon.

I really loved the idea of working at Converse because it wasn’t the typical approach to a mathematician’s placement. I think there’s a common misconception that if you do a maths degree then you are limited to enter finance or academia. This was not only a chance for me to hone and develop my analytical skills in a business, but it was an area I’m interested in outside of academia which is the fashion industry.
