Course overview

There is a shortage of graduates with analytical skills and this course meets the demands of industry. You will develop logical and analytical thought processes, problem-solving abilities and good computing techniques, which will give you the opportunity to pursue highly sought-after careers in a wide range of fields including finance, credit risk, business intelligence, actuarial science, teaching, and research, to name just a few.

This course is professionally accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), to meet the requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation.


Entry requirements

A typical offer is 112 UCAS points from at least two A-levels or equivalent, including A-level Mathematics at grade C or above, or
Applied Science BTEC National Diploma/Extended Diploma at DMM to include relevant Mathematics modules. In addition for all other BTEC courses A-level Mathematics at grade B or above will be required
Plus five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including Mathematics and English or equivalent.

Alternative qualifications include:

Pass Access in the QAA accredited Access to HE Maths course with at least 15 credits in Mathematics at distinction. English and Mathematics GCSE required as a separate qualification as equivalency is not accepted within the Access qualification.

International Baccalaureate: 26+ points with Maths at higher level grade 6

The practical nature of this course expands upon your theoretical knowledge and technical rigour, nurturing your logical and analytical thought processes to enhance your problem-solving abilities. With the benefit of industry standard software skills and a variety of ways in which your mathematical expertise is assessed, you are naturally further developing your professional skills, preparing you for graduate employment.

DMU Mathematics graduates have logical and analytical thought processes, but in addition have:

  • Good problem-solving ability,
  • Good computing techniques using industry standard software such as: SAS, MATLAB, Minitab, Excel.
  • Enhanced their employability skills, by writing statistical reports, presenting results, time constrained tests, researching for a poster / dissertation during their course.
