It’s not just reading dusty textbooks!

The Mathematics courses at Brighton University are a little different to normal Mathematics degrees. It’s not as theory-heavy, which means that we get a lot more time to look at the real life applications of the topics we cover so you’ll fit into the working world straight out of uni much easier.

Even some of the courseworks reflect this hands-on approach to Mathematics; in the second year module Application Statistics 2, a few groups of student conducted the experimental design coursework using paper helicopters. The aim was to determine what aspects of the helicopter granted longer flight time (but come on, who doesn’t want to make paper helicopters for their coursework?!). More information on paper helicopters can be found here.

This is just one example of what makes the Mathematics course here so much more fun compared to other universities. So, apply soon to get your place here!
