Description

Mathematics is important to the modern world. All quantitative science, including both physical and social sciences, is based on it. It provides the theoretical framework for physical science, statistics and data analysis as well as computer science. Our programmes reflect this diversity and the excitement generated by new discoveries within mathematics that affect not only the technicalities of science but also our general understanding of the world in which we live.

The programmes share a common core of Mathematics at Stage 1, and then move on to cover abstract, analytical and computational techniques that give you the opportunity to specialise in areas such as non-linear differential equations, computational algebra and geometry, financial mathematics, forecasting, design and analysis of experiments, inference and stochastic processes.

The MMatStat course is aimed at students who have a strong interest in pursuing a deeper study of mathematics and statistics with the flexibility to choose a wide range of optional modules to allow those who wish to specialise in a particular area the opportunity to do so.

The programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate key mathematical and statistical knowledge and understanding and will prepare successful students with the depth of mathematical and statistical knowledge to enter postgraduate studies at the doctorate level in mathematics, statistics and other closely related subjects. A year of Masters level study in Stage 4 gives students the opportunity to explore more advanced topics, which draws on the School's highly rated research expertise.

Careers

Students studying this degree programme will develop a broad range of skills and mathematical and statistical understanding that are highly sought after by employers and which open up a wide variety of careers. School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science graduates typically find employment in areas involving applications of the subject or they directly enter postgraduate studies at the doctoral level. Recent graduates of the School have gone into careers in medical statistics, the pharmaceutical industry, the aerospace industry, software development, teaching, Civil Service statistics, chartered accountancy, the oil industry and PhD training.

Professional recognition

Successful students will be eligible for the Royal Statistical Society’s award of GradStat, a recognised professional qualification in statistics that is a stepping stone to the Society’s Chartered Statistician (CStat) award (subject to successful accreditation of the programme by the Royal Statistical Society)

UK requirements for international applications

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
