On the Mathematics degree you study six mathematics modules in each year of your studies. Each module contains 200 hours of work and during the first year about 70 hours of this is timetabled class contact. Timetabled sessions are periods in the week where you attend and study with a member of staff present. These sessions can take various formats; a variety of these are used throughout your studies.

The main difference between studying at school and at university is that degree level studies transfer you from dependent learning, being told how to do things, to independent learning, being given a body of information and working out for yourself how to apply it. What this means in a mathematics degree is that you learn to discover mathematical concepts and their uses for yourself.
