Course description

Erin Hales

When I first visited the Alan Turing Building I was impressed with the modern, airy building and all the staff I spoke to were friendly and helpful.

My other favourite thing is the pastoral care and support on offer. Even though the Department is very large, everyone is treated like an individual.

Erin Hales / BSc Mathematics

Lay the foundations of a rewarding career with mathematics at its base by undertaking an undergraduate degree at Manchester. We offer a highly flexible degree programme, ensuring you obtain a strong all-round mathematical knowledge while at the same time encouraging you to focus on the areas that appeal most.

You will cover core topics in the first year, developing your capacity to learn and apply mathematical ideas. In the second year you then choose two from three themes: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Probability & Statistics, along with other optional units such as Programming with Python. You will understand the significance and power of mathematics, and will acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of the mathematical topics that any employer would expect of a maths graduate.

After the first two years, you can choose the areas that interest you most and, from second year onwards, you can even select options from other subject areas. In your final year, you can opt to take on a staff-supervised mathematical project.

Mathematics has a rich history at Manchester - our £40 million purpose-built Alan Turing Building, the home of mathematics at Manchester, is named after just one of our famous names - and you could be part of its bright future.


Tuition fees for home students commencing their studies in September 2022 will be £9,250 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £25,500 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.

Policy on additional costs

All students should normally be able to complete their programme of study without incurring additional study costs over and above the tuition fee for that programme. Any unavoidable additional compulsory costs totalling more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee per annum, regardless of whether the programme in question is undergraduate or postgraduate taught, will be made clear to you at the point of application. Further information can be found in the University's Policy on additional costs incurred by students on undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes (PDF document, 91KB).


The University of Manchester is committed to attracting and supporting the very best students. We have a focus on nurturing talent and ability and we want to make sure that you have the opportunity to study here, regardless of your financial circumstances.
