Mathematics virtual open day
Welcome to Mathematics at Keele. Our department is research active meaning we have particular expertise in the areas of fluid dynamics and acoustics, solid dynamics and elasticity, biomechanics and biomedical engineering, abstract algebra, and statistics.
These topics filter into our degree programmes in various places, particularly as you specialise in later years. We offer a three year BSc in Mathematics and a four year MMath integrated masters degree. You can combine Mathematics at BSc level with various other subjects and also add a specialist degree title if you have a particular mathematical focus.
Please see below for some videos, brochures, student profiles and social media feeds to find out more and get a flavour for what Mathematics at Keele is like.
The Student Perspective
A taste of Mathematics at Keele
Discover about the Mathematics research that takes place at the school.
"The best part of the programme for me was the atmosphere that studying at Keele provided. The open door policy makes Keele special, staff are willing to help you whenever possible and the relationships that you can develop with staff and fellow students makes studying at Keele wonderful."
"The variety of modules on offer at Keele allowed me to study modules I enjoyed while also studying modules that helped develop vital skills required for a professional job role. Don’t hesitate to ask the lecturers for help when you need it, the Maths lecturers at Keele go above and beyond for students in a way you would struggle to find elsewhere."
"One of the best things about the Mathematics course at Keele is the wide range of modules on offer, which allow you to tailor your degree to give you the appropriate skills for whatever you wish to do after your degree. The ability to think logically and solve problems is not something to be underestimated, as well as being an attractive skill to many employers after completing your degree."
"I chose Keele because it was good for my course (Mathematics and Economics) and had a high employability rate. The modules that Keele had interested me and would help me develop a skill-set which would get me ready for a life of work and a headstart in my career. The programme of study became more specialised each year as well as the selection of modules which allowed me to pick modules which I had particular interest in."
Our new state-of-the-art computing laboratories opened last year and are used for a variety of teaching and learning activities. We also have a dedicated workroom for mathematics students situated in the MacKay building within easy reach of your lecturers.
The school also has a very active student run Mathematics Society.
