Mathematics

The University of Leicester is home to an enthusiastic group of mathematicians, both staff and students.

Our internationally acclaimed research informs all our degrees, keeping you in touch with the latest developments and applications in mathematics. You will be taught by our leading academics, ensuring that your learning experience is the best that it can be.

Our degrees are all built around a common core of modules that will give you a thorough grounding in mathematics. Mathematical software such as Maple and Matlab is introduced into the teaching early through computer laboratory classes and further developed in later years.

We have a strong international reputation for innovative research in financial mathematics, actuarial sciences, numerical analysis, scientific computing, mathematical biology, dynamical systems, algebra, topology and geometry. This diversity of research expertise is reflected in the wide range of specialist modules we offer – providing you with the opportunity to specialise in areas of mathematics that fit with your interests and aspirations.

We will support you throughout your degree. As well as regular tutorials and seminars, our regular drop-in learning sessions, run by both staff and postgraduates, can not only enhance your learning but allow you to get to know others.
