University of Essex has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Maths is everywhere and our courses are an exciting challenge. You gain the knowledge and skills that are in demand across both the mathematically and scientifically oriented sectors. In addition to your first-year mathematics core modules, you study modules dedicated to computing, electronics and mechanics. In your second year, you study a range of mathematics, including topics from pure and applied mathematics as well as statistics, and you take physics-based modules in both quantum theory and the history of how the concepts of physics have developed from the time of Galileo to the modern day. In your third year, you choose from a number of options depending on your individual interests. On your year abroad, you have the opportunity to experience other cultures and languages, to broaden your degree socially and academically, and to demonstrate to employers that you are mature, adaptable, and organised. The rest of your course remains identical to the three-year degree.
Many of our courses offer a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning experience. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website.
