Mathematics is essential for understanding almost every area of modern life. Its influence spans finance, medical science, digital communications and even weather forecasting.

Our courses cover pure and applied topics, and give you a vital insight into mathematical applications that are crucial to social, industrial and technological development.

Our leading research in both pure and applied mathematics – ranging from fields, strings and geometry to modelling in biological and social sciences - informs our teaching.

We also have close connections with major organisations, opening the door to a variety of careers, from finance and engineering to pharmacology and healthcare.
