About us

Mathematics at Exeter combines 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.

We offer a wide choice of degree programmes for undergraduates, including single discipline and a variety of exciting combined programmes. Our unique four-year MSci programmes offer named specialisms in Climate Science, Mathematical Biology or Business and Finance.

For postgraduates, we offer a range of innovative taught programmes and an MPhil/PhD in Mathematical Sciences.

Research in Mathematics is organised into four internationally competitive research groups, addressing a range of topics in Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics and Statistics:

Our research also plays a key role in the University’s Science Strategy, via the Climate change and sustainable futures research theme.

Teaching and research facilities

  • We have recently completed a £3 million investment in the College, including refitted lecture theatres and teaching spaces with the very latest in presentation and teaching equipment.
  • The multi-million pound investment also includes major expansion and upgrading of undergraduate computer facilities with a flexible teaching unit comprising 100 workstations
  • We offer wireless networking in most areas.
  • Our newly refurbished Learning Resource Centre is a great location for both private study and group project work.


Both the Streatham and the Cornwall campuses provide everything a student may require from study and research facilities to sport and recreation with an active Students’ Guild supporting a vast array of clubs and societies.

There is an excellent range of student accommodation on both campuses, with a place guaranteed to all first-year undergraduate and international students who accept Exeter as their first choice.
