About MSci Mathematics

Our four-year course gives you the opportunity to explore high-level mathematics at the leading edge of research.

Your degree from Bristol will provide you with core mathematical skills, which will equip you for a variety of careers and provide a very strong basis for further study. The first two years of mathematics provide a broad background in pure, applied and statistical mathematics, underpinning more advanced material later.

Year one consists of compulsory topics. Year two then allows you to choose some topics that are of particular interest to you, meaning you can continue with a varied degree or choose to specialise.

In year three and four you will have a very wide choice of options from across mathematics to best fit your interests, benefiting from our pioneering research. You may take some units from outside mathematics in years two, three and four.

As you move through the course you will gain academic independence moving from small-group tutorial teaching in year one through to a substantial independent project in your final year.
