1.2 Mathematics & Statistics Courses

BSc

This degree provides a thorough grounding in both Mathematics and Statistics, starting with the essential mathematical prerequisites. It is organised to produce graduates who are well trained in both the theory and practice of statistics. Graduates with this degree will find themselves in a good position to pursue a career in statistics or any of the areas using it, including accountancy, actuarial work, industry, management and the Civil Service.

The first year counts 10%, the second year 30% and the third year 60% towards the final BSc degree mark.

MMathStat

The Department of Statistics also offers a four-year integrated Masters degrees in Mathematics and Statistics. Entry to the integrated Masters in Mathematics and Statistics (G1G3) degree is at the end of the second year. Thus, this course differ from the BSc only in the final two years of the (four year) integrated Masters degree.

The integrated Masters degree requires students to study a minimum of 120 CATS worth of modules at the Masters level and includes a 30 CATS Masters dissertation. This degree provides students with an excellent grounding both in Mathematics and Statistics enabling students to embark on research in statistics and probability whilst also providing them with a wide variety of career opportunities both as statisticians and quantitative scientists.

The first year counts 10%, the second year 20%, the third year 30% and the fourth year 40% towards the Integrated Masters degree mark.

Intercalated Year

An intercalated year is a spent away from the University either as work in industry, study at a university overseas or a combination of both. The intercalated year can be taken between the 2nd and 3rd years of a degree course, or between the 3rd and 4th Years of an Integrated Masters course. Students who pass the intercalated year will be awarded a degree certificate with the title including "with Intercalated Year"
