On this course, you’ll spend a year of your degree at one of our partner universities in Germany, studying mathematics in German. When you’re in Sheffield, you’ll spend two-thirds of your time studying mathematics and the rest of your time developing your German language abilities. You’ll cover the same essential topics as other maths students and, in your final year, complete a major research project. We have a small but focused number of maths modules in your first year that cover all the essentials you’ll need for the rest of your degree. In your German classes, you’ll develop your language skills, partly through weekly meetings with a native speaker and complete a project and presentation in German. In the second year, you’ll continue to develop your German language abilities while you build a powerful toolbox of mathematical techniques that you can apply to increasingly complex problems. Some module options include more project work. This gives you the chance to put your mathematics skills into practice in different contexts and scenarios that you might encounter when you start work after graduation. There is also time dedicated for you to prepare for your year abroad in the third year. When you return to Sheffield for your final year, you’ll have the skills, knowledge and experience to go in lots of different directions in mathematics. We’ll give you lots of optional maths modules that you can choose from and your language classes are designed to bring you close to the level of a native speaker. You’ll also spend a third of your time working on your own maths research project. You’ll choose a topic in an area of mathematics that interests you, and work closely with one of our staff who is an expert in the field. You’ll write up your findings and give a presentation about what you’ve learned. You will be assessed in a variety of ways, depending on the modules you take. This can include quizzes, examinations, presentations, participation in tutorials, projects, coursework and other written work.
