About the Department
The Mathematics Department is characterised by its small class sizes and its exceptionally good staff-student numbers, its strong levels of student support and the internationally recognised quality of both its teaching and research.
- There is a wide variety of learning and assessment methods which means that students can make choices about their own learning experience and the way their degree will be assessed. With students frequently working with individual staff or in small groups, this adds up to high success rates at graduation and beyond.
- The degree courses themselves are highly flexible: not only can you specialise according to your own interests as your degree progresses, but some courses allow you to switch between them in your first year of study if your interests change.
- We offer a number of single subject and joint subject degree courses available. Many are available with options to spend a year abroad, either in a European or US American university; many are also available in versions leading to either a Bachelor’s degree (BSc or BA) or the higher level Master’s degree (MMath).
- We are especially proud of the positive and supportive learning environment created by staff and students. Close ties between our students and our staff mean that Leicester students graduate having shared in one of the most vibrant and internationally acclaimed scientific research environments.
