Undergraduate study

At Sussex we recognise that mathematics is the foundation of the physical sciences. It plays a major role in the life sciences and in such disciplines as economics, computer science and psychology.

Why study Maths at Sussex?

  • Our supportive teaching helps our students transition from school or college to degree level mathematics and our open-door policy creates a lively and friendly environment. You'll be supported throughout, by an academic adviser helping you to get the most out of your degree. Find out more about our teaching methods and support

  • We will build on your knowledge of pure and applied mathematics by working in small groups for better collaborative learning.

  • Our department is a real hub of activity and you'll enjoy being part of a close knit community where students and faculty enjoy being able to meet, debate and exchange ideas in our popular social study spaces. Find out more about life as a mathematics student, our student spaces, clubs and societies and student-led initiatives.



"The department really lives up to it's reputation; the teaching staff are always around to give extra help when you're under pressure and the facilities offer the perfect space to work. I felt welcomed straight away into the maths community."
