Mathematics and Computer Science
This joint degree is aimed at students with interests in both mathematics and computer science.
There is considerable overlap between mathematics and computer science. Certainly the history of computer science is closely related to developments in 20th century mathematics. Today it is often difficult to decide whether a particular area of study is a branch of mathematics or of computer science and indeed the distinction is not necessarily important.
At first, students will study the disciplines separately. In later years, students are encouraged to find their niche in the overlap alluded to above by choosing from options in both subjects.
Conditional offers: usually A*AA at A-level (or equivalent), including Mathematics and Further Mathematics if taken, with the A* in Mathematics or Further Mathematics.
