Which undergraduate course?
Our degrees all
provide a strong base in pure and applied mathematics, probability, and
statistics. Computing skills are built in from the first year, helping you can
solve important, real life problems. There is flexibility to
move between degrees should your interests develop.
Our most flexible
degree gives grounding in modern mathematics. You have the opportunity to carry out an advanced
final year project in any field of mathematics.
Statisticians are in
great demand in the modern economy. Students master probability, medical
and financial statistics as well as data modelling, and use professional
software, such as R.
This degree gives you a high level understanding of mathematics. You will also engage in practice in teaching through a school placement, our outreach programme and a written project on mathematics education theory.
On this degree you will be taught by staff from our Centre for Mathematical Sciences and from Plymouth Business School. Topics include financial statistics, investment management and a project in mathematical finance.
In this course, you combine advanced mathematics with the study of classical and quantum mechanics, electrodynamics and special relativity. A final year project allows you to spend a third of your final year exploring a high level physics topic in depth.
Our BSc (Hons) Mathematics with Foundation Year route gives you the skills to continue on any of our undergraduate degrees with confidence. Please contact us for individual guidance.
Which postgraduate programme?
This conversion MSc is designed for graduates of many degrees and can significantly boost your employability. It gives you expertise in data science, computing and business.
