Your course. Your choice.

The great thing about studying maths at Leeds is the huge amount of choice that comes with many of our courses.

As one of the UK’s biggest maths departments, our BSc and MMath Mathematics courses can offer you a large range of optional modules, spanning from transformation geometry and graph theory, to cosmology and Bayesian statistics.

All our maths courses also give you the chance to do a study abroad year, or a work experience placement.

Great careers in mathematics

Over 98% of our recent graduates have successfully secured employment or gone on to further study within six months of graduating (latest Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey).

The city of Leeds is a major financial services and business hub, making it a great place for mathematicians to study and start a rewarding career. You might start your own company, or go on to work in a whole range of industries such as engineering, teaching and software development. 

Study maths in a modern environment

Our School of Mathematics building has recently had a facelift, creating a fresh, contemporary and student-friendly learning space. There are areas for both socialising and studying, so it’s a relaxed atmosphere and somewhere that you’ll enjoy spending your time.

Exceptional student support during your maths degree

We aim to give you the best possible support during your maths degree. Our teaching is rated as excellent, and our team is friendly and approachable.

You’ll mostly study maths through lectures, supported by small group sessions where you’ll meet with tutors and fellow students two or three times a week.

Choose BSc or MMath degree

Some of our maths degree courses are available as a three-year BSc degree, or a four-year MMath integrated masters degree. An integrated masters is a four-year degree that extends your studies to masters level, enhancing your career prospects or setting you up to pursue a PhD.

If you’re interested in learning more about maths or if you want to use maths at a higher level in your career, the MMath could be the right choice for you.
