Department of Mathematics

We’re a small and friendly department and we run a lively range of undergraduate courses. Students can study a core maths curriculum – or combine this with economics, statistics, finance, physics and music. Our teaching and research are well integrated, and our academic interests include pure and applied maths. We often focus on real-world areas where these two disciplines combine.

We also boast an active postgraduate research community, while our award-winning Professional Training placements help our graduates secure jobs across a wide range of sectors, including prestigious City firms, the civil service and various industry positions.

Study with us

The knowledge and expertise of our academic staff ensure the quality of all our courses, so that you are well placed to progress to the next stage of your career.
