Mathematics and Statistics (MMathStat) (Full-Time, 2018 Entry)

 

What will I learn?

If you’re a talented mathematician who is fascinated by the challenge of ‘taming uncertainty’, our Mathematics and Statistics course will teach you to apply statistical methodology in order to manage risk, make predictions and discover patterns. The course offers a balance of theory and application, teaching you to solve practical and theoretical data-related problems arising in areas such as bioinformatics, sociology, economics and finance. You will also acquire skills in analytical thinking, mathematical and statistical modelling, data acquisition, analysis and interpretation, which are highly valued by employers in many sectors.

Our four-year MMathStat degree may also exempt future actuaries from a substantial number of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries examinations.

How will I learn?

You will learn through a combination of lectures, small-group tutorials and practical sessions based in the Department's well-equipped undergraduate computing laboratory. A central part of learning in Mathematics and Statistics is problem solving. We encourage and guide students in tackling a variety of theoretical exercises and computing tasks. MMathStat students work on their own research project in Statistics, supervised by academic staff.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed by a combination of closed and open-book examinations, continuous assessment and project work, depending on your options.

What options are there for work experience and to study abroad?

We support student mobility through study abroad programmes and all students have the opportunity to apply for an intercalated year abroad at one of our partner universities. The Study Abroad Team based in the Office for Global Engagement offers support for these activities, and the Department's dedicated Study Abroad Co-ordinator can provide more specific information and assistance.

    Further Information

    Taking a gap year Applications for deferred entry welcomed.

  • Interviews We do not typically interview applicants.Offers are made based on your predicted and actual grades, along with your personal statement. Occasionally, some applicants may be interviewed, for example candidates returning to study or those with non-standard qualifications.

    Open Days All applicants who receive an offer will be invited to a Departmental Open Day. find out more about our main University Open Days and other opportunities to visit us.

What modules could I study?

Core first and second-year modules covering probability, sets, mathematical statistics, linear algebra and modelling build a solid foundation of essential mathematical and statistical knowledge and skills. You’ll also have flexibility to choose some options. In your third year, you will select half of your modules from Statistics and half from further options available in Statistics, Mathematics and other selected Departments. Examples of options available to current students are: Design of Information Structures, Introduction to Quantitative Economics, Differential Equations, and Geometry and Motion.

The four-year MMathStat course enables you to specialise in either Advanced Statistics, Biostatistics, or Computational Statistics in your last two years. MMathStat students will also work on their own research project under the guidance of a lecturer or professor.
