Course summary

Our Integrated Foundation Year will take you through a carefully-designed programme to help you to progress confidently onto your undergraduate degree.Engineering, Physical, Computational and Mathematical sciences underpin modern technological society and can help us provide answers to fundamental questions. Graduates with these degrees are highly sought after by employers. The Mathematics Foundation Year provides progressive structures in which you are able to gain knowledge and understanding of approaches to scientific study and your chosen degree subject. All Foundation Year students take ‘Global Perspectives’, then four subject-based courses provide familiarity with Mathematics and computation – the language of modern science and technology, and key for success in science, technology and engineering.Once you have completed your Foundation year, you progress onto the full degree programme, BSc Mathematics.Mathematics is in everything: we use it in every aspect of our lives – from managing household finances and investments to working at the cutting edge of digital communications, engineering, aviation, satellite navigation, medical science, weather forecasting, psychology, sociology, insurance, or the financial markets of the global economy. It is one of the oldest academic disciplines and yet it sits at the heart of our 21st century lives.Our flagship BSc programme brings the beauty and breadth of mathematics to life, inviting you to delve deep into the world of abstract structures and ideas, whilst also equipping you with the practical skills and experience that will set you apart in the world of work. Guided by experts in the field, you will receive a thorough grounding in the key methods and concepts that underpin our subject, with the flexibility to tailor your studies in years 2 and 3, thanks to the programme’s modular structure. Our broad curriculum is influenced by the department’s world-class research activities. We are renowned for our work in pure mathematics, information security, statistics and theoretical physics, and our BSc programme spans pure and applied mathematics, statistical analysis, financial mathematics, the mathematics of information, and more. We also offer an array of postgraduate opportunities, and provided you make good progress in year 1 you will have the option of transferring onto our four-year masters programme to help take your mathematics to a higher level, particularly if you want to pursue a career in industry or research. It might also be possible to transfer sideways into the second year of one of our other undergraduate mathematics programmes.Join our friendly and inspiring department and you will benefit from a thoroughly supportive learning environment. We offer small group tutorials, problem-solving sessions, practical workshops and IT classes, as well as generous staff office hours and a dedicated personal adviser to guide you through your studies. We also offer CV writing workshops and a competitive work placement scheme. Our graduates are in great demand for their numeracy, analytical skills, data handling powers, logical thinking and creative problem-solving abilities.
