With an extra year of integrated study at foundation level, this course opens up opportunities to explore mathematics if you don't hold the required A-level or equivalent qualifications, if you want to change career or are returning to study. The foundation year gives you the support, knowledge and skills you need. Developed in collaboration with industry experts, our course is a blend of theory and real-world practice. With a focus on employability, you'll gain knowledge and skills that are sought after by employers, in a supportive, small-group environment. You will learn how to understand technical maths and communicate it in a clear way, while also developing strong presentation skills. You'll apply mathematics and statistics meaningfully in a wide range of contexts using sophisticated software such as Maple, MATLAB, SPSS, Lindo, R and SAS. Alongside this, you will use your knowledge in problem-solving scenarios, both independently and as part of a team. If you achieve the required standard in year 2, you can progress to the third year of the Mathematics MMath or Mathematics for Data Science MMath and study towards a masters level qualification. This new course is in the final stages of development and small changes may occur. Check back for the most up-to-date information.
