Bachelor's degree in Mathematics

School of Mathematics and Statistics (FME)

The bachelor’s degree in Mathematics is a rigorous course that will provide you with comprehensive training in the core disciplines of mathematics and their applications. If your goal is to do research, you will be well equipped to join leading groups conducting research in mathematics, engineering and technology, natural and health sciences, or the social sciences. You will be able to pursue a career in business or industry, or in banking and finance, consulting, health or services – all sectors in which mathematicians are increasingly valued for their training and ability to learn. If you are interested in teaching, after completing a master’s level teacher-training course, you will be able to teach mathematics at secondary schools.
