Programme specification:

The programme will aim to:

- introduce students to the major branches of mathematics;
- meet the needs of students with varied mathematical backgrounds and with different aspirations within mathematics;
- enable the student to appreciate the coherence, logical structure, and broad applicability of mathematics;
- accustom students to the use of tools, including libraries, on-line resources and computers, that are available to mathematicians;
- develop skills in modelling, interpretation of data, problem solving and rigorous argument;
- educate new mathematicians to meet the needs of employers, including those in industry, finance, education and the public services;
- enable the student to study other subjects at university level whilst studying mathematics;
- enable students to study up to a third of their modules as electives from other disciplines.
