Course overview

We know you care about your career. So we've got a maths course that will set you up for a well-paid one. We rapidly adapt what we teach to reflect the fast-moving graduate employment market, and our courses are built on the research expertise of our world-leading mathematicians. 

When most people think of maths, they think of maths in theory alone, but we don't and neither do you. Maths at Kent is dual focused, so as much as theory is important, we care about application. Maths is astronomy, advertising, defense, logistics, media, sales and just about anything else you can think of. 

If you bring us your talents in mathematics, we will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to make it count. Maths is everywhere, and a degree in Mathematics from the University of Kent is your key to getting to wherever you want to go.
