We asked our recent graduates what they enjoyed most about their programme.
Nettie Abbott - Mathematics and Philosophy BSc
It was like a nice balance because I don’t think I would have wanted to do all of each of them. It was quite nice to have a break because they’re so different and have my brain working, different parts of it.
Christos Apseros - Mathematics BSc
It really opened my mind into what mathematics can do in the world and how it can be used. In applications, in jobs, in research, in everything. The degree really got me interested into it.
Dinah Berhane - Mathematics MSci
I guess meeting people and getting involved in Matrix [the Maths student society], that was really fun, social aspects.
Solly Coles - Mathematics MSci
I really liked the projects. The idea that you can do a project in your third year as well as in your fourth year. That was my favourite bit.
Eleanor Garner - Mathematics and Philosophy BSc
I thought why not choose Maths and Philosophy because Maths on its own might be a bit too intense. I love Philosophy now.
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.
Thomas Schafer - Mathematics BSc
I enjoyed all the Pure units like Functional Analysis, Metric Spaces, stuff like that. And I thought it was a really good course. Really enjoyed it.
Tom Triviais - Mathematics MSci
The variety of courses is great.
"It's quite different from A-Levels. Be persistent and learn the new ways of maths in the university."
"Go to lectures and ask questions."
"Do the homework, it makes a whole lot of difference."
"Don't take it lightly. If you work hard you'll do well."
"Get involved with societies and make the most of the year."
