Most universities will have a decent range of modules available.

What specific modules are you interested in?

Pure and stats (non-computational)

Specifically outside of COWI or how they compare to COWI.

Most universities have good stats and pure departments. I would suppose you probably want to be looking at places with separate stats departments, as they tend to have a wider range of stats courses.

In terms of unis here in the UK, most are good for Pure courses.

Look at the information on the websites - the modules are usually listed.

Bath is worth a look.

But Bath isn't RG therefore will naturally have less content?

At the UG level? No. The RG is simply a research group, and for maths a UG level, it doesn't really matter so much. When you are looking at your PhD, you might pay more heed.

Because somewhere like Loughborough appears to have a lacklustre range of modules.

Just looking at it Loughborough has really a mix of all types of modules so would be a great place for those not entirely sure of what they wish to do later on by giving them a variety of modules.

I'm sorry mate, but you're going to have to put in your own legwork.

Most UG maths courses at the upper end are relatively similar.

I don't think anyone has collected all such information in one place (It would be nice if anyone has an amount of free time). So you just have to look round and see what takes your fancy.

Durham is well regarded, as is Nottingham.

For pure and stats; have a look at Lancaster. I think their stats department is especially good in terms of variety of modules.

I know Nottingham is underrated due to its slightly lower entry requirements.
