Leading a revolution in maths
A new home for Maths
Mathematical Sciences will move into the new £13.2m STEM building being built at our Colchester
Campus in 2017. With collaborative learning spaces and interdisciplinary facilities, it will be a welcome new home for our growing department.
Maths at Essex has a broad reach. From identifying key factors in
recession-hit towns to being at the centre of the University’s pioneering
work on data, you’ll join expert mathematicians who undertake
ground-breaking research which makes a difference every day.
We want you to be the best you can be and are committed to developing the
mathematicians, actuaries and statisticians of the future. We are
award-winning teachers and passionate academics, and our staff and
students know each other personally – we are a true academic family.
Whether you study at undergraduate or
postgraduate level, you graduate with the Essex mindset that maths is
far more than an academic discipline: maths is everywhere.
- Small and friendly department
- 90% of our students are employed in graduate jobs 6 months after graduating
- Free language courses, study abroad and placement year opportunities
- Dedicated workstations for research students
- One of our University's founding departments
Four of our undergraduate courses including BSc Mathematics can now be taken with a placement year.
Take your course with a year’s work placement and gain invaluable experience for your CV.
Maths Support Centre
Our Maths Support Centre is open to all students, staff and members of the public. It is staffed
by a friendly team of student advisers from our department who can help with maths problems you're having at any level.
