The College admits up to 15 undergraduates per year to read Mathematics and its associated joint degrees (listed above). Whilst there is no fixed quota among these subjects, there are typically 7-8 Mathematics, 1-2 Mathematics & Statistics, 1-2 Mathematics & Philosophy and 2-3 Mathematics & Computer Science undergraduates each year.
With around 45-50 undergraduates in the college reading Mathematics or a joint degree, Worcester is one of the largest Mathematics colleges and one whose students perform strongly in Finals examinations. The emphasis is very much on support, rather than competition, and the different degree groupings are treated as a unit, both educationally and at the regular subject social events.
The College’s Maths tutors are strongly committed to the distinctiveness of an Oxford education and all teaching within the first two years (with the exception of revision classes) is conducted in tutorials of 1, 2 or 3 students by college tutors. Almost all branches of mathematics are taught within the College; as options become specialized in the third and fourth years, teaching is done in university classes, but again the College’s tutors are able to offer support, advice and revision in a broad range of these subjects.
