Course summary

Overview

This course provides graduates with advanced mathematical skills and fluency in their chosen language, offering a valuable combination of technical expertise and linguistic excellence. Mathematical and language skills will be enhanced by studying mathematics for a year at one of the foreign partner universities. Graduates in mathematics and languages are consistently near the top of graduate employment tables, and the coupling of disciplines in this degree course ensures a highly marketable qualification.

The principal aims of the programme are to: • provide high-quality undergraduate education in a wide range of subjects in modern mathematics • enable students to develop detailed knowledge and critical understanding of both theoretical and applied elements of mathematics • provide students with training and practical experience of modelling, analysing and interpreting mathematical and real-world problems • enable students to communicate and work effectively with peers and academic staff, demonstrating appropriate levels of autonomy, initiative, and responsibility • provide students at the undergraduate level with the opportunity to plan and write a dissertation requiring detailed and critical understanding in an area of mathematics • equip students with the grounding in mathematics necessary to go onto to further study or straight into graduate jobs • enable students to be fluent in their chosen language • provide experience of university education and cultural life in a partner university in which the language of instruction is either French, German or Spanish.

Teaching and Learning

The following teaching methods are used: lectures, tutorials, computing laboratory work, coursework, projects, language labs. Teaching on the programme is student-focussed, with students encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and development. In addition, students learn through structured group work in problems solving, collaborative student presentations, and independent study and technical project work. Resource-based and problem-based teaching styles are used to facilitate the motivational and assimilative phases of the learning process. The level and type of support available via VISION will vary between the courses as is appropriate for the subject matter.

Approaches to learning and teaching are continually reviewed and developed with the aim of matching them to the abilities and experiences of the students.

Assessment

The assessment policy for the programme incorporates a range of assessment types. Continuous assessment during some courses and summative assessment at the conclusion of courses both contribute to the overall assessment and are used to formally measure achievement in specified learning outcomes. Understanding, knowledge and subject-specific skills are assessed by coursework assignments and written examinations. Formative assessment is used to provide feedback and to inform student learning.

Approaches to assessment are continually reviewed. Specific details about methods of assessment are provided in the appropriate course descriptors.
