Why a mathematics degree?

There are lots of exciting reasons to join us on a mathematics degree, take a look below at what you could get involved with.

Professional Training placement

Our Professional Training placement helps you to gain the experience you need to stand out from the crowd, and the opportunity to gain graduate job offers from your placement companies.

The placement covers all our undergraduate courses, please take a look at our professional training site for more information.

MMath 4 or 5 years

The enhanced four or five year MMath degree course offers the opportunity to study at a higher level, and the six month integrated placement scheme gives students the chance to use this high level material in a working research environment.

MMath with integrated placement

Students enrolled on this course complete their project during their placement under the guidance of both an academic member of staff and an experienced industrial partner.

Summer research studentships

Each year, the Department of Mathematics offers a minimum of two summer research studentships to undergraduate students in the middle years of their degree for a period of up to eight weeks during the summer vacation.

These studentships can help students discover whether or not they would be suited to a career in academia or one involving high levels of industrial research.

For more information on the summer research studentships, please contact Dr Matthew Turner.

Global Graduate Award

We offer free language courses here at the University as part of the Global Graduate Award in Languages, so you can learn a new language whilst studying, or improve on one you already know.

Mathematics education module

We also have a dedicated Mathematics Education module in year 3 which places students in local secondary schools under the watchful eye of a teacher mentor, giving them first first hand experience of teaching mathematics at this level. For more information contact Jonathan Bevan.

Amazing Maths seminar

Alongside the assessed modules, the department runs Amazing Maths seminars which introduce topics and problems that show the beauty of mathematics. These seminars are ideal for those students who are fascinated by the application of mathematics in every day life.
