The School of Mathematics has invested in dedicated spaces for our students to meet up and study, on top of all the facilities available University-wide.
The MathsBase is our dedicated study and help centre for first-year students. You can work here with other mathematics students, and tutors from the first-year mathematics courses are available throughout the day if you need help.
The Maths Hub is an informal social and study space for students in second-year and above. As well as a small kitchen and several sofas, there are large tables for working in groups and an adjoining room for quiet study.
Small-group teaching takes place in “teaching studios”, with multiple groups working in the same room. You will normally be working around a table with 4 or 5 other students, with a tutor on-hand to help.
All of our degrees involve some element of mathematical programming, and this is a particular focus in the Applied Mathematics and Mathematics & Statistics degrees. You will also learn to use the same software that professional mathematicians use to write up their work.
