Course summary

Our professionally accredited three-year Statistics BSc Honours degree provides a firm foundation in the ideas and techniques of modern statistics.

Course overview

All our mathematics and statistics degrees focus on three core areas – pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics – and you have the flexibility to tailor the combination of these to suit your interests.

On this degree, you will select mostly statistics modules in the later Stages. These include:

  • foundations of probability
  • regression and modelling
  • Bayesian statistics

You can also choose optional modules linked to the research expertise of our staff and learn about the latest developments in the discipline, such as advanced hydrodynamics, quantum mechanics, and Bayesian inference.

Professional accreditation

Our degrees are accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA). IMA accreditation means our degrees meet, in part, the educational requirements for the Chartered Mathematician (CMath) designation, with some additional study or experience required.

Teaching methods

You'll be taught through:

  • lectures
  • problem classes
  • tutorials and drop-in sessions
  • practical computer classes and computer-based assessments
  • data collection and analysis

Careers for mathematicians and statisticians

Mathematicians and statisticians have always been highly valued by employers for their analytical and problem-solving skills, and their ability to think logically and quantitatively.

You'll also develop key skills which are essential for the employment market such as communication, teamwork, planning, and organisation.

There are some careers for which a degree in mathematics is usually required, for example, teaching mathematics, statistical work, actuarial work, some research and development, and some areas of computing.

Mathematics graduates are also strong candidates in areas such as:

  • management consultancy
  • finance
  • accountancy
  • information technology
  • logistics
  • transportation

Industry too is always looking out for specialists with an interest in the applications of mathematics to engineering.

A degree in mathematics and statistics can also lead on to further study including PhD, MSc and PGCE courses.
