Mathematical Sciences

Our undergraduate programmes are based on the four main research areas of Applied Mathematics, Operational Research, Pure Mathematics and Statistics.

All programs have a common core in year one and then allow a greater choice in subsequent years, allowing you to broaden your experience and interest within any or all of the four research areas.

You will have an opportunity to construct an individual programme of study suited to your interests within a coherent framework of modules.

There are three possible degree structures available: MMath, BSc Single Honours and BSc Combined Honours and the seventeen individual degree programmes can be grouped as follows.


  • Because our accreditation with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries is based on performance in individual modules and not on the actual programme taken, it is possible to achieve 5 or 6 exemptions from the Core Technical exams, with most of our programmes, and in some cases, for example Maths with Actuarial Science, Mathematical Studies or MORSE, even all 8 exemptions are possible
