    Description

    Our professionally accredited four-year Mathematics and Statistics MMathStat Honours degree includes an integrated year of Master's level study.

    All our degrees provide a thorough grounding in the ideas and techniques of modern mathematics and statistics.

    We focus on three core areas - pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics - and you have the flexibility to tailor the combination of these to suit your interests.

    On this degree, you will select modules evenly across both mathematics and statistics. These include:

    • complex variable
    • statistical inference
    • foundations of probability

    In Stage 4, you explore more advanced topics in detail, drawing on the research expertise of our staff. You also experience the excitement of discovery for yourself, with a substantial research project on a topic that interests you.

    Quality and ranking

    Mathematics and Statistics at Newcastle achieved an impressive 92 per cent overall student satisfaction score in the National Student Survey 2013.

    Course Content

    Our degrees are divided into Stages. Each Stage lasts for an academic year and you need to complete modules totalling 120 credits by the end of each Stage.

    Please be aware that programme modules do change and therefore may differ for your year of entry.

    Our Mathematics and Statistics degrees all share a common set of modules in Stages 1 and 2, and a choice of optional modules in later Stages.

    Your degree title will depend on the balance of mathematics and statistics modules studied after Stage 1. To qualify for the degree Mathematics and Statistics MMathStat Honours you must study at least 180 credits of statistics modules, including the Stage 4 project, during Stages 2, 3 and 4.
