Course Content

The first year of your degree is devoted to core material, including basic programming and statistics to give you a solid foundation in modern mathematics. On completing the first year, you will be able to discuss the underlying concepts and principles of mathematics, programming and statistics and to apply these to specific problems.

In the second year, you can pursue your interests further by choosing from an increasing range of options. On completing the second year, you will be able to build on your previous knowledge and experience from year one. You will master more advanced mathematical techniques and will be able to apply these to real-life problem-solving.

In the final year, most modules are optional and a number of speciality modules covering an assortment of topics are available as you pursue your interests even further. On completing the final year, you will further develop a systematic and detailed knowledge and understanding of advanced mathematics. You will have access to modules which draw on current mathematics research and will be exposed to new areas of mathematics with applications in finance, biology and physics.

Assessment Methods

Assessment is based on examination and coursework. Marks are weighted in a 1:3:6 ratio for the three years of study to produce an overall aggregate.

Types of assessment

  • Set exercises or coursework, which you take home and complete with the aid of your notes.
  • Formal unseen written examinations every year.
  • Class or online tests.
  • Group assessments, such as written reports, also form the basis of assessment for some modules.

In the third year of your degree, a core module consists of a group project. The group is assessed by a group written report and an individual presentation on the project. Also, a small number of modules require students to give presentations.
