Course Summary

Mathematics plays a hugely important role in the modern world, from predicting your shopping habits to enabling technological and scientific innovation. Our Foundation Year programme provides an opportunity for you to develop your mathematics skills and start learning some university-level material, fully preparing you for university study before you progress onto your chosen mathematics programme. You will benefit from the in-house expertise of our internationally-renowned mathematicians and statisticians to ensure you are fully prepared for your future career. We will encourage you to fulfil your potential whilst studying in our friendly and dynamic school based in the multi-award-winning Sibson Building. This programme has been designed for those who have achieved grades or are predicted grades significantly lower than our standard AAA or AAB entry requirements. **Your studies** To help bridge the gap between school and university, you’ll cover material from the A Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics syllabuses, along with advanced topics taken from university-level studies preparing you for university. Alongside mathematics, you can choose optional modules covering topics from computing to history. After passing the Foundation Year, you can progress onto one of the following programmes: BSc Mathematics (UCAS: G100), BSc Mathematics and Statistics (UCAS: GG13), BSc Financial Mathematics (UCAS: GN13) or BA Mathematics and Accounting and Finance (UCAS: GN14), each of which can be taken with or without a Year in Industry. In Stage 1 you’ll continue to receive support through small group tutorials, where you can practice the new mathematics you’ll be learning, ask questions and work with other students to find solutions. You’ll study a mixture of pure and applied mathematics, and statistics, providing you with a solid foundation for your later studies. In Stage 2, you study some core modules which build upon the material learnt at Stage 1. You also start to tailor your degree to your interests through our range of optional modules, continuing to explore the areas you enjoy into Stage 3. **Accreditation**This degree meets the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competencies to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master’s degrees.**Superb student experience**The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science (SMSAS) at Kent has a thriving student culture, with students from all degree programmes and all degree stages participating in student activities and taking on active roles in the School. As a SMSAS student you benefit from free membership of the Kent Maths Society and Invicta Actuarial Society. You can become a Student Rep and share the views of your fellow students to bring about changes. You could be employed as a Student Ambassador, earning money while you study by inspiring the next generation of mathematicians. Or join one of the society committees and organise socials and events for SMSAS students. You will be encouraged to make the most of your time at university and will have access to support and guidance throughout your studies.
