Mathematics BSc (Hons) at De Montfort University has been designed to meet the demand in industry for skilled mathematicians and statisticians. The course will allow you to develop the technical and practical skills to use mathematics to solve problems in the workplace. You will be taught to use industry standard software, and you will also be given scenario based projects, allowing you to develop your logical and analytical thought processes to solve real life problems using computing techniques. The knowledge and technical experience gained will enable you to enter a wide range of careers in areas such as mathematics, statistics, operational research, computing business and education. Mathematics was awarded 100% overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2018 and 100% of Mathematics graduates from summer 2017 are in work or further study after graduating, according to the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) 2016-17 report.

Application deadline details:
De Montfort University is brilliant for those wanting to express their creative skills through a degree. The university itself is just 10 minutes from the city centre and with shops almost on campus itself there is a choice of places to grab a bite to eat for those students nights where cooking isn't an option. As for nightlife the The city's pubs and clubs are close to the uni, most are on one street so walkingis no worry.
