About

Mathematicians have always been fascinated by numbers. One of the most famous problems is Fermat’s Last Theorem: ie if n3, the equation xn+yn=zn has no solutions with x, y, z all nonzero integers. The Mathematics course is offered at the University of Oxford .

Overview

Often the solution to a problem will require you to think outside its original framing. This is true here, and while you will see the second problem solved in your course, the first is far too deep and was famously solved by Andrew Wiles.

In applied mathematics we use mathematics to explain phenomena that occur in the real world. You can learn how a leopard gets its spots, explore quantum theory and relativity, or study the mathematics of stock markets.

There are two Mathematics degrees, at the University of Oxford, the three-year BA and the four-year MMath. Decisions regarding continuation to the fourth year do not have to be made until the third year. The first year consists of core courses in pure and applied mathematics (including statistics). Options start in the second year, with the third and fourth years offering a large variety of courses, including options from outside mathematics.

Careers

Quantitative skills are highly valued, and this degree prepares students for employment in a wide variety of occupations in the public and private sectors. 

Nathan, an engineer, says: ‘During my degree I developed my ability to solve complex problems – a fundamental skill set to tackle challenges I encounter on a day-to-day basis as an engineer. The application of mathematics in engineering and manufacturing is ever increasing, meaning there will be more and more opportunities to find interesting roles in which I can apply my skills.’
