  • Why Study Maths?
    • Maths Is Important Maths is the language of the universe. It forms the foundation of engineering, computing, and the sciences. It is the basis for technological advancement. Mathematical modelling can be used to glean knowledge about ecosystems and evolutionary biology; it allows us predict the weather, and even human behaviour. It is an essential component of statistics, which can be applied to medical research as a means of determining drug policies and public health directives. A mathemetically literate citizen is able to make better economic and political decisions in the areas of finance, risk, policy and resource allocation.
    • Maths Is Interesting Mathematics is an exciting and challenging field with a huge variation in subject areas. The application of mathematics to real-life problems can have a significant impact on our lives.
    • Maths Has Good Career Prospects  Students graduate with range of skills; they can use logical processes, calculating assumptions and making appropriate deductions; they can analyse problems to make computations and decide on an outcome; they can use advance concepts to decide which areas mathematics can be successfully applied to. These skills are valued by employers in the fields of finance, IT work, scientific research and logistics, leaving mathematics graduates with a wide range of career options.
