Glasgow’s proud history of excellence in mathematics reaches back to the 17th century. Today we have a strong international reputation in several areas of pure and applied mathematics research.
We are highly rated for the levels of support we give our students. Study with us as an undergraduate, and you can benefit from our range of flexible degree programmes. These include the option of specialising in either pure or applied mathematics, or combining maths on an equal basis with another subject in science, social science, or the arts.
Our internationally excellent research was recognised in the 2014 REF (Research Excellence Framework) when we were given a world-leading rating of 89% and were ranked 8th out of 53 submissions in mathematical sciences across the UK for research intensity.
