Hello. I'm Dr Jie Yang.
00:00:02.080 --> 00:00:05.080
I am the BSc
Director of Studies for Mathematics.
00:00:05.400 --> 00:00:09.480
Our programme is accredited
by the Institute of Mathematics and its
00:00:09.480 --> 00:00:14.040
applications, which is the UK's chartered
professional body for mathematicians.
00:00:14.200 --> 00:00:17.200
Our programme is taught
by a diverse group of lecturers
00:00:17.400 --> 00:00:20.680
with different expertise, ranging
from mathematical biology and fluid
00:00:20.680 --> 00:00:24.000
dynamics
to mathematical finance and statistics.
00:00:24.640 --> 00:00:25.520
Now, in your first year
00:00:25.520 --> 00:00:29.040
you'll be taught modules
such as calculus and linear algebra.
00:00:29.520 --> 00:00:31.000
This is to help you develop
00:00:31.000 --> 00:00:35.080
your foundational knowledge
as well as develop analytical skills
00:00:35.200 --> 00:00:38.200
to help you solve problems
in a rigorous fashion.
00:00:38.320 --> 00:00:40.760
During the second
and third year of your studies,
00:00:40.760 --> 00:00:44.800
you will be offered optional modules,
such as Statistical Models,
00:00:44.880 --> 00:00:47.920
Mathematical Biology,
and also Quantum Mechanics.
00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:51.280
You can choose these particular modules
according to the career direction
00:00:51.280 --> 00:00:52.280
you wish to pursue.
00:00:53.360 --> 00:00:54.480
Our programme places
00:00:54.480 --> 00:00:58.880
an emphasis on mathematical modeling
and also computational
00:00:58.880 --> 00:01:03.480
skills, such as writing reports in LaTeX
and also programming in Python.
00:01:04.200 --> 00:01:06.960
We have a mix of exam and project
00:01:06.960 --> 00:01:10.720
based modules to assess a different range
of skills from our students.
00:01:10.720 --> 00:01:14.080
In particular
during the final year of your studies
00:01:14.080 --> 00:01:17.040
you will investigate
a topic of your choice
00:01:17.040 --> 00:01:20.040
under the supervision
of a member of staff.
00:01:20.040 --> 00:01:22.840
During this process,
you will greatly enhance your written
00:01:22.840 --> 00:01:24.440
and your presentation skills.
00:01:24.440 --> 00:01:28.560
In addition to developing your
independent learning skills.
