The Graduate Market

Foundation year

Created for those without an A-Level, or equivalent, in maths. This one-year, full-time programme is your stepping stone to one of our accredited mathematics and statistics BSc degrees.

Complete the foundation year and guarantee your place on our Mathematics BSc course or our Mathematics and Statistics BSc course.

Single honours

Choose from a Bachelor of Science (BSc), Master of Mathematics (MMath) or Master of Mathematics and Statistics (MMathStat).

Our MMath and MMathStat courses offer advanced modules, specialised study and enhanced technical skills. They’re an ideal choice if you’re considering postgraduate study.

Joint honours

Immerse yourself in two disciplines with our joint honours courses. You'll gain expertise in more than one field by splitting your time evenly between the two areas.

Mathematics with the Business School

These two degrees are taught with our triple-accredited Business School.

You’ll spend two-thirds of your time studying mathematics and the remaining time studying specialised business subjects like:

  • accountancy
  • corporate finance
  • management
