You’ll deepen your understanding of statistics alongside either pure or applied mathematics. In statistics, you’ll start with data analysis, medical statistics, time series analysis, multivariate analysis and Bayesian statistics, and using statistical software; moving on to applications of probability, linear statistical modelling, and underpinning mathematical theory. Pure mathematics explores formal proof, abstract structures, linear algebra, analysis and group theory; while applied mathematics focuses on differential equations, linear algebra, vector calculus, computer algebra software, Newtonian mechanics, and mathematical modelling.
Please note that you will normally need to achieve a certain standard in Essential mathematics 2 (MST125) before progressing to Stage 2.
To read about the Stage 1, 2 and 3 modules that make up the BSc (Honours) Mathematics and Statistics (Q36), you can download and print a prospectus extract. For more information on all the qualifications available in Mathematics and Statistics, request a prospectus.
