About MSci Mathematics

Our four-year programme allows you to explore high-level mathematics at the leading edge of research.

Your degree from Bristol will provide you with core mathematical skills that will equip you for a variety of careers and provide a strong basis for further study. The first two years 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 years three and four you will have a very wide choice of options from across mathematics to best fit your interests. You may take some units from outside the school in years two, three and four.

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