Mathematics and Statistics

Mathematics and Statistics plays a fundamental role in many aspects of modern life, providing the underpinning language and tools for a wide variety of disciplines and technologies. At Exeter, students will encounter a wide variety of mathematics covering pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and computation, and will be given the opportunity to explore applications in high-impact fields including climate, healthcare and industrial challenges.

As a department, we combine a breadth of academic expertise with a caring and supportive learning environment. We provide high quality teaching, supervision, pastoral care and learning opportunities designed to challenge and bring out the very best of our students' intellectual and personal skills.

Professor Geoffrey Vallis, Head of Mathematics and Statistics
