Keele University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.
You will study in an intellectually stimulating environment amongst mathematicians producing world-leading research. There is an option to take this degree over four years, by adding a year abroad studying (in English) at one of our partner institutions – which could be anywhere from Australia to Finland, Japan or the USA.
Our programmes are designed for students with varying education backgrounds and you need not have taken Further Mathematics at A Level. To make your transition from A Level to University Mathematics as smooth as possible we have:
• a very carefully designed first year curriculum;
• a multi-layered student support structure;
• rapid feedback on coursework;
• considerable experience in teaching, examining and moderating A Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, and in school/college liaison.
You will learn to use maths to develop precise and logical arguments, construct rigorous proofs, and formulate solutions to new problems.
Over the years we have prided ourselves on providing a friendly and supportive environment for students. In particular, by the end of your degree, you should feel that you know the staff well and that they know you.
Mathematics helps you to take novel approaches to problem solving and make critical interpretations of data and text; your skills will be in demand wherever there’s a need for logical thinking. An extremely wide range of career paths is open to mathematicians, where high levels of mathematical ability are desirable. This can include fields of work as diverse as finance, data analytics, teaching, engineering, medical statistics and management consultancy.
