The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications is a chartered professional body for mathematicians in the UK. Accreditation means that our degrees demonstrate both a high level of competency and professionalism in the area of mathematics. All of our single honours MSci schemes meet the requirement for gaining the CMath designation which is a professional status in advanced mathematics, well recognised by employers. Our single honours BSc schemes also contribute towards gaining this designation.
Head of Department, Dr Alexander Belton welcomed the new accreditation, he said: "I am delighted that the department has achieved accreditation from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. Our undergraduate degree schemes provide an excellent education in mathematics and statistics, with top-quality teaching and support provided by our dedicated and hard-working staff. The professional recognition provided by the IMA will be a further boost to our graduates as they begin their careers."
All of our single honours degree pathways in Mathematics, Statistics and Mathematics with Statistics have been accredited until 2023. These programmes are already recognised by the Royal Statistical Society and the IMA accreditation status further enhances our reputation as a leading UK department.
