Mathematics BSc with Year in Industry
Mathematics is one of the most fascinating and intellectually challenging subjects you can study. The School of Mathematics and Actuarial Science at the University of Leicester is home to an enthusiastic group of mathematicians; both staff and students.
On a Mathematics Degree at the University of Leicester - whether you study for a BSc or MMath - you will come to appreciate the excitement of a subject which is integral to designing new aircraft or providing tomorrow's weather forecast, where graduates can find themselves employed in areas as diverse as high energy physics and economic forecasting.
The first and second years of your degree contain a core of modules on topics drawn from mathematical analysis and algebra, aimed at helping you to think rigorously and logically. At the same time there is the opportunity to explore other areas of the subject and develop your interests in areas of pure and applied maths and statistics, including abstract algebra, analysis, dynamics, differential equations, numerical analysis, probability theory and linear statistical models.
In the final year, you will have a wide choice of option modules, meaning that you can tailor your degree to exactly the structure that you want, reflecting your own interests and your future career plans.
All of our Mathematics degrees give you the opportunity of spending a year in a sponsoring company or organisation. This will give you first-hand experience of working in a mathematics-related career, develop you workplace skills and allow you to network with people in industry (subject to availability and progression requirements).
You will have the opportunity to spend a year of your course at one of our partner institutions overseas. If you choose one of our European partners, your Year Abroad will be between your second and third years at Leicester. If you choose to study in the USA, your year abroad will replace your second year at Leicester. Further information about the USA year abroad can be found in the Year 2 Course Structure information.
Leicester has a strong international reputation for innovative research in financial mathematics, actuarial sciences, numerical analysis, scientific computing, mathematical biology, dynamical systems, algebra, topology and geometry. This diversity of research expertise is reflected in the wide range of specialist modules we offer – providing you with the opportunity to specialise in areas of mathematics according to your interests and aspirations.
What's the difference?
The BSc (this course) is the regular, three-year Maths degree. You have the option to spend your second year in the USA, or take a year out in Europe between Years 2 and 3 (you can't do both)
The MMath is essentially the BSc with a fourth year on the end that includes a major project. This is the course to take if you are considering continuing your studies with a PhD. You can spend your second year in the USA
