Are you a problem-solver? A critical thinker? Maybe you want to use your analytical skills to make innovative technological discoveries? The Bachelor of Mathematics (Advanced) will prepare you for a career far beyond the norm and outside the conventional roles of a mathematician. You’ll join a high achieving cohort and build on your previous knowledge in logic, mathematical modelling, experimental design and data analysis. Enhancing your learning with industry experience, you’ll build professional connections which will increase your career outcomes. You can work in a wide range of fields including communications, international finance and the futures market, the energy sector, or even medical and health research.

Areas of study: Applied mathematics, pure mathematics, statistics. This degree provides you with the essential skills and knowledge necessary for a career in your chosen field.  

Career opportunities: The Bachelor of Mathematics (Advanced) can lead you to a career in various fields. Some typical roles include algorithm designer, risk or strategy analyst, meteorologist or sports statistician.

Professional recognition: Students may join the Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS) as student members before they graduate. Graduates with a Statistics major are eligible for Graduate Accreditation on becoming a member of the Statistical Society of Australia.

Practical experience: The Bachelor of Mathematics (Advanced) degree offers additional work- and research-integrated learning, as you will apply your studies to complete a major transdisciplinary capstone project in your third year.

Honours: Available as an additional year (or part time equivalent) to meritorious students.

Fees and charges: Visit the University of Newcastle website for current fee information.

Notes

  1. Use all ATAR profile data as a guide only; it provides a broad overview of the ATARs and selection ranks of previous Year 12 students admitted into that course. ATARs and selection ranks required for entry in 2020 may be different. If you are unsure about including a course among your preferences, contact the relevant institution.
  2. This ATAR profile table is in line with Commonwealth Government transparency requirements. It is based on offers to recent school leavers (ie completed Year 12 in 2016 to 2018) who were selected solely or partly on their ATAR. Note that some institutions further differentiate this information on their websites by publishing:
    • separate data for 2018 Year 12 students and 2016/17 Year 12 students
    • data relating to an entire year's intake (eg all offers made in 2019 – semesters 1 and 2).
  3. The ATAR values exclude any adjustment factors.
  4. The selection ranks include the ATAR and any adjustment factors.
