Mathematics is a central and important component of human culture, which also helps us solve a wide range of practical problems. Mathematics supports innovation and progress in science, technology, finance and business, and is also essential for organisational decision-making. In addition, the current widespread availability of large data sets has led to increased demand for graduate mathematicians. The Mathematics Foundation year provides a solid grounding in Mathematics to enable you to take your studies forward towards degree level and beyond. On the BSc(Hons) Mathematics with integrated foundation level entry, you will develop a strong foundation in mathematical and statistical concepts and methods. Areas studied during the Foundation Year include calculus, mechanics, mathematical structures, statistics, modelling and the use of software. You will apply the concepts and methods needed to solve real world problems, in areas such as science, technology, industry, finance and healthcare. In Year two and the Final year of the degree, you will be given the opportunity to specialise in your areas of study by choosing the optional modules in which you are most interested. These include options involving work-based learning in a school environment that provide an opportunity for you to consider the possibility of postgraduate teacher training. We have been ranked 25th nationally for Mathematics in The Guardian University League Tables 2017.
