Mathematics underpins much of the modern world and is fundamental to science, technology, business and finance. In the BSc Applied Mathematics programme you will study essential mathematical topics as well as a range of applications. The programme emphasises versatile mathematical modelling techniques and offers a wide selection of optional modules, allowing you to follow your individual interests and career plans.

Through studying mathematics you will acquire highly flexible skills that will last a lifetime, including strong analytical abilities, problem-solving skills and an appreciation of the importance of logical reasoning. You will also develop computational proficiency and learn how mathematical modelling can be used to analyse real-world problems. These skills are vital to many industries and are highly sought-after by employers.

Why should I study Applied Mathematics at XJTLU?

  • Join a vibrant learning environment of around 700 undergraduate students.
  • Learn from expert mathematicians, trained in globally respected universities and engaged in research on a broad range of topics.
  • Gain experience in mathematical modelling and observe how mathematics can be used to make an impact in the world.
  • Enjoy the flexibility to choose modules to suit your individual interests from different application areas of mathematics, including finance, statistics and physics.
  • Get the chance to undertake the Visiting Study Abroad Programme during Year Three. We have exchange programmes with prestigious partners: Michigan State University (USA), and University of New South Wales (Australia).
  • Benefit from XJTLU's location in the Suzhou Industrial Park, where there are opportunities to undertake internships at a variety of multinational companies and financial and technological institutions.
  • Earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.

Knowledge and skills

By the time you graduate from the BSc Applied Mathematics, you will have:

  • a solid understanding of the core areas of mathematics including analysis, linear algebra, differential equations and statistics,
  • the ability to reason clearly and critically, and to construct mathematical arguments,
  • the ability to analyse a mathematical problem and select appropriate tools to solve it,
  • the ability to construct and assess mathematical models for real-world problems,
  • research experience gained through the completion of a final-year research project,
  • the ability to communicate mathematical information and ideas in English to both specialist and non-specialist audiences.

Quantitative skills are crucial in this era of big data sets. Estimates and solutions require mathematical models, based on geometry, analysis, algebra, probability and statistics. The BSc Applied Mathematics equips students with mathematical knowledge that helps them master complexity.

  • Year One

    UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides you with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree.

  • Year Two

  • Year Three

  • Year Four

I have developed solid mathematical, problem solving and logical skills which gives me the confidence to achieve my future career goals. I enjoy the globalised experience in an English learning environment and have made many smart and interesting friends.
