Professional recognition

This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught masters degrees.

The BSc Hons Mathematics (Extended) is identical to the BSc Hons Mathematics, but includes a preparatory year which aims to help to prepare students for degree study in the subject. It also has a lower entry tariff.

The BSc Hons Mathematics (Extended) has been accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications to meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation when followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency for taught Master's degrees.

In response to our students' increased interest in pursuing a career in teaching, we also offer courses such as 'Mathematics and Society' and 'UAS: Mathematics, Education and Communication'. The latter offers teaching experience through the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme. This encourages and nurtures a new generation of mathematicians and provides the opportunity to gain classroom experience as a final-year option.


Our mathematics degrees are ranked:
  • First in London for student satisfaction by the Complete University Guide 2017
  • Within UK's top five for student satisfaction by the Complete University Guide 2017.


The aims of the programme are:
  • To provide you with a comprehensive understanding of mathematical methods and techniques, and the ability to apply them to real-life problems
  • To develop your problem-solving and analytical skills
  • To provide you with experience of practical applications of mathematics, including mathematical modelling in various contexts
  • To give you training in the use of mathematical software and an understanding of the strengths and limitations of computers and other tools.
