Why mathematics at Sussex?

Giles' perspective

Giles Smith'I came to Sussex because of its excellent academic record in mathematics, and because of the stunning campus.

My degree course was enjoyable and varied, spanning most of the areas in maths and the content was challenging yet accessible. The lecturers made things clear and if there were any problems they would go out of their way to help, if not in the lecture then afterwards.

I really enjoyed Mathematics in Everyday Life – learning how even the most abstract theories can be applied. It is excellent motivation when it comes to other courses; you can see there is always a point to things done in maths.'
