Mathematics is an active and dynamic research department here at Brunel. Our academics’ work is frequently supported by external grants and contracts with leading industry and government establishments. As a result, lecturers are often working at the frontiers of their subject and as their work feeds directly into their teaching, you can rest assured your degree course is truly up to date. We offer a wide range of courses in Mathematics and its applications. Each of our BSc programmes will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its applications provided it is followed by training and employment experience so you acquire equivalent competences to their specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught Master’s degrees. We offer the following BSc degree programmes:
Financial Mathematics BSc
Mathematics and Statistics with Management BSc
Mathematics with Computer Science BSc
We also offer students the opportunity to do MMath degrees which is an integrated Master's degree programme. We offer two four year MMath programmes:
Financial Mathematics MMath
Our Mathematics and Computing with an Integrated Foundation Year and Professional Development Degree is designed to help you progress to a challenging and exciting career in computing or mathematics. The foundation year will help you clarify where your interests lie. You might opt for computer science and work with ever more sophisticated computer technology and information systems. Or you may find yourself drawn to mathematics where you will learn to model and solve problems from the worlds of business, finance and science.
Once you have successfully completed your foundation year with the grades needed for your chosen computing or mathematics degree course, you progress directly into level 1 of that degree – there’s no need to re-apply!
Economics and Mathematics with Integrated Foundation Year
This foundation year is designed to help you progress to a challenging and exciting career in economics and finance. Our carefully designed curriculum is particularly suitable for those who want to change direction, perhaps not having taken A-levels in mathematics or economics, and for mature applicants returning to study.
