Bachelor of Mathematics

University of Wollongong

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00102E

The UOW Bachelor of Mathematics degree teaches highly transferable skills in problem-solving, data analysis, probability and variability, mathematical modelling, logistics and logic. Just about every industry depends at some point on handling and interpreting data, and on predicting and modelling outcomes. The degree is flexible, so students can take up to one-third of their subjects from other disciplines to expand their career options. Applied mathematics is the basis for successful decision-making and problem solving independent of sector or industry; it can provide new insights into nature, technology and business and create a pathway for innovative solutions. Applied mathematics underpins a wide range of scientific and commercial enterprises, providing extensive career options. A focus on pure mathematics is ideal for students who enjoy developing creative solutions to subtle problems and wish to explore the abstract and logical aspects of the discipline. Pure mathematics is concerned with exploring patterns and solving problems; it focuses on developing and analysing unifying mathematical concepts and principles through deductive reasoning.

Standard entry requirements

DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12 The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 75 or an IB of 26. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. Find out more about UOW adjustment factors here: ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied any 2 units of English. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia. In order to succeed in your chosen course, it is assumed you have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications. This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.

Study pathways

If applicants can demonstrate they have met the learning outcomes for UOW subjects through prior learning, such as previous tertiary or TAFE qualifications, they may be eligible for credit towards their degree. Where relevant to the UOW degree, specified credit may be given for specific subject(s); where not relevant to the degree, unspecified credit may be awarded.
