What will I learn?

Mathematics can be seen as the most international of subjects – a global ‘language’ with ancient origins and which is now vitally important in our data-driven world.As a student on our four-year MMath Mathematics, you will be taught in our new £32.5m Computational Foundry, a world class centre with state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research, as well as networking and meeting spaces, to help prepare you for a successful and rewarding career.We are 5th and 6th in the UK for graduate prospects (Times & Sunday Times University Guide and Complete University Guide 2018) with 89.2% of our graduates in graduate employment or further study six months after leaving University (DHLE Survey 2016).Employers place great value on the ability to think rationally and to process data clearly and accurately, and Mathematics graduates earn on average 50% more than most other graduates. The most popular careers are the actuarial profession, the financial sector, IT, computer programming and systems administration, and opportunities within business and industry where employers need mathematicians for research and development, statistical analysis, marketing and sales. Student satisfaction is at the forefront of our teaching goals, and we are very pleased to have recorded an overall satisfaction score of 91% in the 2018 National Student Survey and 18th in the UK for student satisfaction (Guardian University Guide 2020). We are also proud that the Mathematics Department consistently appears in the QS World University Rankings.The MMath course is accredited to meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. It covers the general range of mathematical material over four years including elements of different aspects of the subject such as Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Mathematics for Finance. You will have the chance to explore the number theory that Pythagoras studied, the Financial Mathematics that the highest flyers on Wall Street rely on, and a wealth of other topics reflecting our lecturers’ research expertise in probability, analysis, nonlinear partial differential equations, non-commutative geometry and algebraic topology.The degree will give you a sound grounding in the basic concepts of Mathematics, allowing you to specialise in your chosen areas. It will also develop your ability to use and evaluate logical reasoning and construct rigorous arguments; and develop your oral and written communication skills as well as your ability to use modern communication tools, especially those most appropriate to mathematics.This degree is also available as a five-year course with a year abroad (G105)."Studying at Swansea University has been a pleasure. The past two years have been a wonderful adventure, from discovering some of the Welsh culture, to learning from some of the best lecturers I have ever met. The thing that really stands out about Swansea is the huge support you get as a student - from absolutely everyone! Whenever I have had problems - whether personal, academic or financial - I have had someone to advise me, to listen to me and to help me." -- Alissa Kamilova, BSc Mathematics**We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University.
