School of Mathematics and Statistics

Changing the way we think about the world
Spearheading a 21st century approach to teaching, scholarship and research, we are committed to sharing the wonder of mathematics.

We are one of the largest mathematical sciences schools in Australia, and the University of Sydney is the only Australian university to have received the highest rating of 5 out of 5 for research in the mathematical sciences in every Australian Research Council Excellence in Research for Australia assessment to date.

Teaching at the School of Mathematics and Statistics

The teaching activities of the School of Mathematics and Statistics cover all levels – from bridging courses, undergraduate majors, minors and postgraduate coursework and research.

Mathematics is a prerequisite for many university courses, as a commitment to the importance of maths to Australia’s future.

The University's flexible courses allow you to combine mathematics with other areas of interest. Many courses are also offered at an advanced level, so you can choose a program that suits your level of ability and interest.
