Course summary

**Course summary**- Learn about real-life applications of mathematics, including mathematical and numerical approaches to modelling, problem-solving, and statistical methods.- Use modern software and technology to apply mathematical techniques, and develop your analysis and interpretation skills to provide solutions for a variety of applications.- Work as part of a learning community within a maths-specific shared learning space.On this course you will learn how to use pure and applied mathematical and statistical techniques to solve real world problems. Real world applications are rarely presented in a mathematical form, therefore you will learn the techniques needed to describe and then solve such problems mathematically. Applications could include: environmental, medical, industrial and commercial contexts.**How you learn**Our course emphasises the development of practical skills such as communication, teamwork and problem-solving. We therefore prioritise the use of coursework activities, such as group work, oral presentations and writing reports, over exams.You learn through- lectures- tutorials- IT sessions- problem-based and practical activity-based sessions- group and individual project work- the opportunity to act as a mentor for other students- progress meetings- reflective action planning- written or electronic coursework assignments- presentations- in-class tests- examinations**Applied learningWork placements**You will have the opportunity to undertake a year-long work placement between your second and third years of study, with support from the University. This gives you a real-world experience to prepare you for your future career and a salary of up to £22000 for the year. Students have been on placement at- Covance- HSBC- NHS England- Lloyds- Pepsico- Experian- Mercedes- IBM- Department of Health- Airbus- Royal Mail- ParExelThere are plenty of opportunities locally, but students have gone as far as China for their placement.We will help you decide whether undertaking a placement is right for you, and will support you in making applications. This is your chance to apply your academic knowledge in the work environment and improve your career prospects. It can even lead to the offer of a permanent job with your placement employer.**Live projects**You have opportunities throughout the course to gain practical experience. The course has an applied focus, so you will look at solving real-life problems such as developing a model for a health epidemic, using data in credit scoring, creating sports fixture lists, and many others.**Support and learning environment**We have a strong, supportive learning community, based on excellent staff-student relations. This is helped by a maths-specific shared learning space, designed to combine student workspace with staff office space. As well as having easy access to your lecturers, you work closely with other students in a supportive environment. We aim to provide opportunities to mix outside of formal teaching time.The space is also used for social-professional activities, such as the weekly Maths Arcade project, in which you can learn strategic thinking through playing strategy games. From your first week you work on projects with your coursemates as well as second or final year students, helping you settle in and form friendship groups that last throughout your course and beyond.
