Program description

Mathematics,Operational Research & Statistics With Professional Placement

This four-year degree features an employability-enhancing third year working in a paid role, providing the ideal preparation for a career in operational research and statistics.

Gain valuable hands-on experience and develop your professional skills 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.

This four-year version of the degree includes a year of paid work in a mathematician and/or statistician role during year three. You will return to Cardiff following the successful completion of your work placement at the start of the autumn semester ready for your final year of studies.

In a competitive graduate job market, a placement can help you gain extra skills and experience to make you stand out from the crowd. It could help you secure a permanent role after you graduate, as well as providing real-world context to support your studies. If you're not sure what career path to follow, it's a great opportunity to explore your options and might even help you make those all-important decisions about your future.

Our students have completed exciting placements at organisations including:

  • HM Revenue & Customs
  • NHS Wales
  • The Office of National Statistics
  • IBM

Distinctive features

  • High student satisfaction - An impressive 100% of students on this course were satisfied with their overall experience according to the National Student Survey 2019.
  • 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 statistics and operational research industries.
  • Professional Placement Year - Spend your third year in paid work as a mathematician or statistician where you can gain valuable work experience and develop your professional skills. We have strong links with industry and a dedicated placements team to help you find a placement and support you during your time there.
  • Professional award consideration - If you complete the professional training period, you can be considered for the City and Guilds Senior Licentiateship Award (LCGI).
  • 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.
