What will I learn?

Our professionally accredited four-year Mathematics and Statistics MMathStat Honours degree covers ideas and techniques of modern mathematics and statistics and includes an integrated year of master's-level study.

Course overview

We focus on three core areas - pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics - and you have the flexibility to tailor the combination of these to suit your interests.

On this degree, you will select modules evenly across both mathematics and statistics. These include:

  • complex variable
  • statistical inference
  • foundations of probability

In Stage 4 you will explore more advanced topics in detail, drawing on the research expertise of our staff. You also complete a substantial research project on a topic that interests you.

Professional accreditation

Teaching methods

You'll be taught through:

  • lectures
  • problem classes
  • tutorials and drop-in sessions
  • practical computer classes and computer-based assessments
  • data collection and analysis

Careers for mathematicians and statisticians

Mathematicians and statisticians have always been highly valued by employers for their analytical and problem-solving skills, and their ability to think logically and quantitatively.

You'll also develop key skills which are essential for the employment market such as communication, teamwork, planning, and organisation.

There are some careers for which a degree in mathematics is usually required, for example, teaching mathematics, statistical work, actuarial work, some research and development, and some areas of computing.

Mathematics graduates are also strong candidates in areas such as:

  • management consultancy
  • finance
  • accountancy
  • information technology
  • logistics
  • transportation

Industry too is always looking out for specialists with an interest in the applications of mathematics to engineering.

A degree in mathematics and statistics can also lead on to further study including PhD, MSc and PGCE courses.
