Program description

Mathematics Operational Research and Statistics With a Year Abroad

This four-year program features an adventure-packed third year studying at one of our partner universities across the globe.

Explore new cultures and practices whilst delving deeper into the fascinating world of Operational Research and Statistics.

Operational Research, or Management Science, uses advanced statistical and analytical techniques to help organisations and individuals make decisions efficiently. Working in this field you might be:

  • Determining manpower and resources allocation
  • Finding sequences in a supply and procurement chain
  • Developing customer profiles and segments

This course will equip you with the skills, methods and ways of thinking you need to become a confident statistical analyst. You will be able to tackle complex organisational problems using methods such as data collection, statistical modelling and simulation.

On this course, you will study at a university abroad during your third year before returning to Cardiff for a final year of studies. Our School has agreements with institutions across the globe, and you will have support to apply for your overseas year.

Studying abroad as part of your university experience is a great way to broaden your academic knowledge, immerse yourself in another culture and gain skills that could be valued by employers. Not only will it enhance your CV by demonstrating key skills such as communication, flexibility and collaborative working, it can also provide you with valuable networking opportunities. Above all, it is the start of a new adventure. A chance to experience other cultures and viewpoints, make new friends and share unforgettable experiences.

Distinctive features

  • Specialist knowledge - Alongside learning a broad range of mathematical techniques, you will gain the in-depth knowledge and skills required to secure a role in the finance, banking and insurance industries.
  • Year Abroad – Spend one year studying at a university abroad where you can learn while you travel and experience the practices and culture of a different country.
  • Flexible degree schemes – In most cases, you're free to switch between degree programs at the end of year one if your interests change. You don’t need to choose a university abroad until the beginning of year two, so there’s plenty of time to explore your options and decide where you would like to go.
  • Student satisfaction - Belong to a small and friendly community voted top among all Russell Group Universities in the main category of Overall Satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2018.
  • Support facilities - You will have a personal tutor who is there to offer advice, in confidence, on both academic and non-academic matters, as well as access to weekly tutorials, supervised computer laboratories, and daily drop-in sessions for one-to-one support.

The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the 2020/21 academic year. The final modules will be published by September.
