Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Statistics

University of Leeds

This course allows students to develop a solid grounding in the main branches of mathematics, but with a strong emphasis on statistics. Mathematics is the language of science and is ever-present in everyone’s lives. This course introduces students to core mathematics topics alongside studying statistics to an advanced level, while still giving you the flexibility to explore other areas that interest them. Statistics underpins a great deal of scientific research and analysis. Statisticians are qualified to collect, analyse and present data in a scientific and objective manner. The work of statisticians is used to ensure correct decisions are made. Statisticians are in high demand in both the private and public sectors, in areas such as market research, the NHS, environmental science, forensic science and government statistics. Graduates of this course also enjoy the same opportunities as those studying for a mathematics degree.
