Mathematics, one of the most fascinating and intellectually challenging subjects, constantly develops the ways in which we live and think, as it plays a key role in most of today's scientific and technological advancements. Students on this programme not only develop a sound knowledge of mathematics and its application to real-life situations but also build up their ability to analyse and solve problems.
The degree presents students with an opportunity to acquire skills, such as logical analysis, deduction, mathematical modelling and calculation, which are valued by most employers. In addition, this programme combines mathematics with business as a minor component. Students on this programme will have one quarter of their studies in the minor subject area of business throughout their degree.
Our mathematics degrees are ranked:
- 1st in London for student satisfaction by the Complete University Guide 2017
- Within UK's top 5 for student satisfaction by the Complete University Guide 2017.
The aims of the programme are:
- To provide students with a comprehensive understanding of mathematical methods and techniques, and the ability to apply them to real-life problems
