We asked our students what they enjoy most about their programme.
Nettie Abbott - Mathematics and Philosophy BSc
It was a nice balance because [the subjects are] so different and have different parts of my brain working.
Dinah Berhane - Mathematics MSci
Meeting people and getting involved in Matrix [the Maths student society] and the social aspects, that was really fun.
Jake Hewlett - Mathematics BSc
I’ve made some great friends on my course – you get to know people well. Maths gives you numerical and analytical skills that can be applied to any problem, and the Perspectives in Maths unit teaches hands-on skills that were really useful.
Hannah Jones - Mathematics and Philosophy BSc
I could pick which things I liked out of each of them, but I really like the sort of things when they cross over like logic.
Jess Martin - Mathematics MSci
I like that you do a bit of everything in first year, because you don’t know what you like until you’ve tried it. But once you know what you enjoy you can choose to specialise.
Alex Modell - Mathematics BSc
My favourite part of the course is my project; I’m getting a taste of what it’s like to do research. I didn’t think I would be interested in research at all, but the project’s helped me to realise that’s what I want to do.
Daoyi Wang - Mathematics MSci
Bristol sets you up to do well. If you want help, it’s always there. You can ask lecturers in class or drop in at office hours; the academic staff are really approachable.

Our student-run mathematics society, Matrix, runs social and networking events throughout the year, as well as promoting career opportunities. All members can join the family network, where students are assigned a 'parent' from a later year to offer advice on unit choices, career direction and more.
Bristol Students' Union supports a wide range of student societies, including the Actuarial Society, Bristol Consulting Society, Computer Science Society, and Women in STEM, as well as a wide range of sports and activities.
