On this MMath Mathematics degree, you’ll work with leading researchers who’ll introduce you to pure and applied maths. Learn advanced mathematical and statistical concepts, covering topics from cryptography to black holes. You’ll graduate with the technical skills sought after by employers in finance, commerce, industry and research.

The first 3 years of this integrated master's degree are similar to both the Mathematics and the Mathematics with Statistics courses, covering:

  • algebra
  • calculus
  • number theory
  • statistics
  • mathematical modelling

In the fourth year, you’ll study advanced concepts such as representation theory, harmonic analysis, advanced general relativity or Lie groups.

There is also an MMath Mathematics with Statistics pathway available as part of this programme. Following the Statistics pathway you could study topics such as machine learning, survival analysis and other modern applications of statistics.

As part of this course you’ll:

  • study advanced research methods in algebra, analysis, geometry and topology
  • have the option to specialise in statistics
  • undertake an individual research project in a field of your choice
  • use our student centre, a dedicated learning and social space for maths students
  • 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.

Ranked Top 15 in the UK for Mathematics and 12th for Graduate Prospects (Complete University Guide 2022).
