Bachelor of Science (with Honours) - BSc (Hons)
Sandwich / Placement
In today’s information age, a massive amount of information is gathered every day. On this course we’ll teach you how to interpret patterns in data using statistics to make correct decision or predictions about the future. Demand is high for talented statisticians in private and public sectors, in areas such as market research, the NHS, environmental science, forensic science and government statistics.
This course aims to equip you with the advanced mathematical ideas and computational techniques to succeed in this area. You'll be hands-on throughout your course and make considerable use of our specialist facilities that include mathematical and statistical software and virtual reality and 3D printing technology. These will help give you the knowledge and skills employers demand.
You’ll benefit from excellent teaching. We are in the top 10 in the UK for teaching quality in mathematics (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021).
More student opportunities
Our students run a Mathematics Society, and you’ll have the opportunity to take part in regular events hosted on campus by the local branch of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
What you'll study
In Years One and Two you’ll explore a wide range of mathematical techniques and applications. Then, in your final year, you’ll get to choose a number of specialist modules, depending on your own personal preferences and career aspirations.
Who will teach me?
I recently won several HESTEM grants to work with the Nottingham Girl's High School on final year maths education projects and to build employability skills into our maths course. Local, national, and global companies have helped us to make sure that our students leave with the skills, abilities, and confidence to excel in the jobs market.
As a team, our research focus includes biological mathematics, statistics, and computational modelling, but we also encompass financial analysis, cryptography, and many other fields.
How will I be assessed?
We want you to graduate with a range of transferable skills, so all of the Mathematics modules have two or three assessment components that help you to demonstrate your knowledge in a variety of ways. As well as traditional exams and in-class tests, you’ll complete assignments and group projects, and give presentations. In your final year, you’ll also complete your mathematics project with the support of your personal tutor.
