Our Certificate of Higher Education in Mathematics is ideal if you want to study mathematics at university level but do not want to commit to a full BSc Mathematics programme yet. This flexible evening study programme will develop your knowledge and understanding of mathematical and statistical techniques. You will learn how to solve problems logically and analytically, and improve your quantitative and computing skills. The course will not only expand your general knowledge of mathematics, but also enable you to explore the areas that interest you the most. Highlights
- The Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics has an excellent reputation for the quality of its academic research and teaching. In the 2020 National Students Survey, 100% of mathematics students were satisfied overall with their course. We offer a full range of academic programmes in economics, finance, mathematics and statistics and we regularly provide customised training to various public and private sector organisations.
- We provide a broad education in the mathematical sciences and their application to commerce and the natural and social sciences. Our courses cover the theoretical background, as well as methods and modelling techniques, and equip you with a wide range of mathematical skills.
- Mathematical sciences are highly valued by employers, and our graduates go on to successful careers in business and finance, statistics, research and analysis, management, consultancy, and teaching, among many others.
