Mathematics is an exciting and challenging subject that plays a central role in many aspects of modern life. When you listen to a CD, watch a weather forecast, use a mobile phone or surf the Internet, you are benefiting from sophisticated mathematical ideas. Mathematics provides the language and techniques to handle the problems from many disciplines. Mathematics is also studied for its own sake: it has a beauty and structure of its own, built upon thousands of years of invention and discovery.

Mathematics is often demanding but it can also be fun, especially when you are learning in good company. At UEA you will be lectured by, and get to know, world-authorities in many branches of Mathematical research. UEA is a modern institution and we pride ourselves on our friendliness. Students come here from across the UK and from overseas. Their company will enrich your time and studies through firm friendships and lasting attachments.

Many of our graduates go on to successful careers in business and finance and we have recently launched a new degree, Mathematics with Business. Mathematics has a key role to play in many aspects of modern business.

The degree programme combines the development of mathematical concepts and advanced techniques with the application of this mathematic expertise to the business world. It is offered in association with Norwich Business School which has a first class reputation for teaching and for the development of professional business skills. This course gives you the opportunity to study with leading experts in both Mathematics and Business, whilst also developing your language and communication skills in a prestigious UK university.

There are a range of statistics options available, particularly relevant to a career in business. Understanding of the underlying theory of statistics gives our graduates a head start in many different fields of business, and recent graduates have become accountants and actuaries.

In the Business component of the programme, various strands of study are possible: Finance, Economics, Management, Accountancy and Actuarial Science. You can choose to focus on one specific field of business study, or to get a good grounding in a wider range of fields.
