Course Summary

This programme is designed to be as flexible as possible; you will have a choice of modules taken from our BSc Mathematics. You will meet with the programme director before the start of the academic year and decide on a suitable programme of study, based on your interests and experience.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework.

Graduates can pursue careers in the financial sector, actuarial profession, IT and computing, teaching and academia. Possible professions include actuary, statistician, or chartered accountant. This degree may also be useful in becoming a corporate investment banker, investment analyst, or quantity surveyor.
