Course summary

The Graduate Certificate in Mathematics by Distance Learning provides an opportunity to extend and refresh your skills and background knowledge in mathematics, whether you are looking to progress to further postgraduate study or simply to complement your previous mathematical education. It is designed to suit both busy Londoners and students from around the world. The course materials and content have been specifically developed to meet the needs of distance learners and offer the flexibility you need to combine study with work.

We offer modules that cover key topics such as advanced calculus and abstract algebra to give a solid foundation that equips you for further specialisation in a wide range of areas of mathematics and its applications.

This is an undergraduate-level qualification that will prepare you for postgraduate study, such as our MSc Mathematics or MSc Mathematics and Financial Modelling.

TEACHING

Teaching may include formal lectures, seminars, and practical classes and tutorials. Formal lectures are used in most degree programmes to give an overview of a particular field of study. They aim to provide the stimulus and the starting point for deeper exploration of the subject during your own personal reading. Seminars give you the chance to explore a specific aspect of your subject in depth and to discuss and exchange ideas with fellow students. They typically require preparatory study.

ASSESSMENT

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework. The methods of assessment on this course are specified below under 'Methods of assessment on this course'. You will need to allow time to complete coursework and prepare for exams.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue careers in the financial sector, actuarial profession, IT and computing, teaching and academia. Possible professions include actuary, statistician, or chartered accountant. This degree may also be useful in becoming a corporate investment banker, investment analyst, or quantity surveyor.
