About this course

Study topics from modern cryptography (the art of writing or solving codes) to modelling black holes, and complex financial problems. You'll learn abstract and structured thinking skills while studying mathematics, statistics and operational research. Employers will look for your skills in finance, industry, education and you could move into a career working on scientific and social challenges.

This course is very broad, allowing you to explore topics like abstract algebra, black holes and relativity, networks, and machine learning.

As part of this course you’ll:

  • develop your abilities in problem-solving, calculation and logical argument

  • be able to specialise in pure or applied mathematics or statistics, or follow a broad path across these topics and more

  • use our student centre, a dedicated learning and social space for maths student

  • use mathematical and computational packages such as Python and the statistics package 'R'

You’ll be taught through a combination of lectures and workshops, by leading researchers in fields, such as group theory, the mathematics of nature and experimental design.
