Why study BSc Mathematics at Middlesex?
A degree in mathematics is a highly regarded qualification by a wide range of employers which you can read more about in the Careers tab. However, one of the key areas where employers are increasingly looking for maths graduates to excel is communication - the ability to convey the meaning of complex mathematics to those without the same level of knowledge. As a result of this, we have developed a unique module in ‘Communicating Mathematics’ which will help you become even more desirable to employers when you graduate.
On this course you can:
- Study a broad range of topics covering the whole spectrum of pure maths (that means algebra, calculus, geometry and logical reasoning)
- Take advantage of optional advanced modules on applications of maths to simulation and optimization problems, applied statistics (lead by active researchers), and physics
- Choose to move on to an integrated master, MMath, where you can study options from financial maths to more advanced pure maths, including a reading course and a project
- Publish the results of your project in our thriving departmental journal
- Learn through a problem-based approach where theory comes from an understanding of what’s going on, especially in the Problem Solving Methods module
- Develop communication skills in various forms (written, web-based, presentation, group working etc.) to learn how to explain and discuss maths to a wide range of audiences.
We normally make offers on a minimum of 280 UCAS tariff points, plus GCSE Maths and English Language at grade C.
