About BSc Mathematics with Statistics

A mathematics with statistics degree from Bristol will provide you with statistical skills which are in high demand from employers. It will also provide you with a strong basis for further study.

The first year of the programme provides a broad background in pure, applied and statistical mathematics via a range of compulsory units. From year two onwards you will focus your units more on statistics and probability although there is still scope to take some units from other areas.

As you move through the course you will gain academic independence moving from small group tutorial teaching in year one through to an optional independent project in your final year.

Our BSc Mathematics with Statistics degree is accredited by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS). Students on this and the MSci course are automatically entitled to Graduate Statistician status on application to the RSS, provided they achieve at least Second-class Honours.
