Course summary

To many people, statistics means numbers – collecting them and organising them. The field of modern statistics involves much more. It is the source of techniques developed to help managers and researchers to draw reliable conclusions from observations that contain variation.Operational research techniques, sometimes called management science, provide quantitative decision-making methods complementary to statistical analysis, such as the control of queues, stock, and quality control.Our five-year MMORS Mathematics, Operational Research and Statistics course offers you the opportunity to delve more deeply into pure and applied mathematics, statistics and operational research than is possible on a BSc course and offers a strong grounding in general mathematical Designed for those with an enquiring mind, this degree provides a range of mathematics modules designed to challenge and stimulate your academic curiosity. You will study pure mathematics, statistics and operational research modules linked with optional modules from applied mathematics and computing. In later years, the focus is on advanced applications of modern statistics and operational research theory. Throughout your studies we support you to become an independent learner, able to effectively tackle unseen problems. This programme is ideal for those who want to gain a deeper understanding of mathematics and develop skills in demand by a range of prospective employers. It will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to work in research or a range of industries, business and governmentThis Year of Study Abroad version of the degree allows you to spend your third year studying abroad before returning to Cardiff for the final two years.
