Bachelor of Science (Honours) - Mathematics (with Placement Year) (G101) at University of Reading: Tuition Fee: £23,700.00 GBP / Year (Scholarship Available)

The BSc Mathematics is a well-rounded degree which can be tailored to meet students; interests and is a stepping stone to a wide range of careers. Mathematics plays a key role in many aspects of modern life, from technological development to data analysis. If students enjoy problem-solving, then this could be the ideal course for them. It will also enable them to develop a range of skills that are highly desired by employers, including mathematical computing, communication skills and teamwork.

During the first two years students will study the main aspects of mathematics and develop their knowledge in areas such as algebra, analysis, calculus and differential equations. In the second year students will also take a skills module, which is designed to improve transferable skills and enhance students employability.

Students will receive plenty of support to help them get the most out of their studies, including small group problem-solving tutorials and materials to help manage the transition to university-level mathematics. Students will also benefit from around 20 hours of contact time per week. Additionally, graduates can get involved with the Department's staff-student liaison committee, which enables students to have a direct input into the student experience.

In the final year of the degree students can develop their knowledge by exploring areas of interest in greater depth. The vast majority of modules in this year are optional and include subjects from subjects from both pure and applied mathematics, and statistics, such as number theory, cryptography, mathematical biology, numerical analysis and multivariate data analysis. During this year students will also carry out a project on a mathematical or statistical topic and produce a report and presentation on it.

Between second and final year students will carry out a paid industrial training placement, lasting around 12 months. Placements can be located anywhere in the UK, and occasionally take place abroad.

Students could take on a wide variety of roles such as statistician, business analyst, actuarial intern and radiation protection scientist. They will also have the chance to work for a range of national and international organisations such as Microsoft, IBM, SAP or the NHS.
