Studying mathematics is an inspiring and rewarding experience that helps us to interpret and solve global problems that would otherwise be incomprehensible. It is one of the few subjects that can open up multiple pathways for you in the future.

At Exeter we excel not just at core mathematics, including statistics, pure mathematics and computing, but also in the applications of mathematics to real-world problems, including climate modelling, natural systems, health and medicine.

We run an inclusive and supportive department where our community of academics, students and staff are always available and delighted to help you, ensuring that you get the most out of your mathematics degree with us.

I really like the atmosphere and the slower lifestyle in Cornwall. There’s a community feel even outside the campus and everyone’s friendly which makes you feel safe. 

I chose Mathematical Sciences at Exeter as it was one of the only ones I found that taught applied mathematics in terms of evolution and the natural environment. There’s also the opportunity to study interdisciplinary modules and pick up as many skills from other degree disciplines as you want.
