Highfield / Highfield - Maths

Mathematical Sciences

The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) rated 100% of research activity in Mathematical Sciences as of internationally excellent or world-leading quality.

Our BSc Mathematics equips you with high-level skills in numeracy and problem-solving and offers great choice should you wish to specialise. The four-year MMath Mathematics will equip you with many of the skills needed for a career as a professional mathematician.

The management of organisations relies on the solution of problems with mathematical and statistical content. Our BSc Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics and Economics (MORSE) introduces you to the mathematical methods and tools used to address such problems.

Our BSc Mathematics with Actuarial Science, unique in the UK, leads to possible exemption from all eight core technical professional actuarial examinations.

The BSc Mathematics with Finance will give you a good finance background and strong quantitative skills, making you highly employable.

Statisticians are in demand in many areas of industry and business. In our BSc Mathematics with Statistics, you will study both the theoretical and practical aspects of statistics.

Physics uses mathematics to make predictions about the world and many areas of mathematics have developed because of the need to solve physical problems. Graduates from our BSc Mathematics with Physics are in great demand.

A huge variety of jobs is available with our BSc Mathematics with Computer Science. You could end up writing the next version of Windows, devising a stock control system for a furniture manufacturer or writing a secure web-based customer interface for a US music distributor.

Mathematical models and simulations are increasingly called on in global decisions. Our BSc Mathematical Studies is designed to meet this demand.

BSc Mathematics with French

BSc Mathematics with German

BSc Mathematics with Spanish

In these degrees, you will spend year three in a country where your chosen language is spoken.

The BSc Mathematics with Music will develop your problem-solving skills and build on your musical experience, combining technical studies with historical and critical work.

Mathematical Sciences - taught courses

Mathematical Sciences has one of the broadest communities of mathematicians in the UK, spanning pure and applied mathematics, statistics and operational research.

A very high proportion of our MSc graduates go into employment related to their MSc work, as students benefit from direct contact with potential employers during the course. Our postgraduate research students are highly sought after by other universities, business and industry, NGOs and governments worldwide.

If you choose to study with us at postgraduate level, our Graduate School in Mathematical Studies will provide you with a coordinated programme tailored to your needs and the opportunity to be part of the scientific community in the UK and overseas.

Mathematical Sciences - research

We have one of the broadest communities of mathematicians in the UK, spanning pure and applied mathematics, statistics and operational research.

We have a lively and thriving community of postgraduate students engaged in research across a range of areas and we support them extensively. Supervisors, international experts in their field, provide in depth training. Students are given a personal computer, a desk in a shared office and a conference attendance allowance.

We offer a number of competitive studentships to cover fees and cost of living. The type of funding available depends on the eligibility of the candidate.
