The BSc in Mathematics is flexible, allowing you to specialise as you progress through the course or to maintain a broad range of modules from the major branches of mathematics.
The course has an essential core of pure mathematics linked with modules from applied mathematics, statistics, computing and operational research and you will sample all of these branches in your first year.
