Our BSc Mathematics (including foundation year) is open to Home, EU and international students. It will be suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course and you want a programme that increases your subject knowledge as well as improves your English language and academic skills. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of study. During your Year Zero, you study four academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory English language and academic skills module.Maths is everywhere and our courses are an exciting challenge. You gain the knowledge and skills that are currently in demand in mathematically oriented employment; in business, commerce, industry, government service, the field of education and in the wider economy. In addition to your first-year mathematics core modules, you study a targeted computing module that includes Matlab and Maple. The module Codes, Computers and Life explains some key notions of modern science. In your second year, modules range from formal algebra through to applications of mathematics in operational research (the mathematical side of management) and statistics, including the key mathematical methods.
