Want to study Mathematics at university but don’t have the grades? The Foundation route is designed for applicants who do not meet the admissions criteria for our BSc (Hons) Mathematics. This additional year focuses on key material from A-Level Mathematics, its applications and a number of more advanced topics. The Foundation Maths course will involve a large number of contact hours with Mathematics staff to ensure you are properly supported. Successfully passing the Foundation year guarantees you entry onto the first year of our BSc Mathematics course where you will build upon and apply the knowledge gained during the Foundation year. Our BSc and MMath Maths degrees are accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
Foundation Year: Mathematics Degree Fundamentals of University Mathematics Applications and Investigations Computer Literacy Working Effectively with Computers The following years are in common with the BSc Mathematics degree. Year One: Mathematics Degree Algebra Calculus Probability and Statistics Algorithms and Software Tools Mathematical Modelling and Mechanics Mathematical Proof and Analysis Year Two: Mathematics Degree Abstract and Linear Algebra Further Calculus Management Science Further Statistics Combinatorics and Networks Financial Modelling Pattern Recognition and Decision Making Year Three: Mathematics Degree Codes and Information Cryptography and Information Security Operational Research Partial Differential Equations Nonlinear Systems and Mathematical Biology Introduction to SAS and Statistical Forecasting Financial Mathematics Final Year Project Extended Tutoring in Schools and Colleges You will also be introduced to specialist mathematical software that will be used throughout your Maths degree.
You will be assessed through a combination of coursework, phased class tests and formal exams. The assessment strategy is designed to provide you with regular feedback on your work so that you can identify your strengths and weaknesses and therefore allow you to develop into an all-rounded mathematician.
