You'll be taught by mathematicians whose research allows them to offer a wide range of specialised modules. Independent reviews of our teaching have singled out our wide choice of modules and the approachability of our staff for particular praise.
Most teaching takes the form of lectures supported by tutorials and problem classes, and in some cases through computer practical classes and project work. The University's computing facilities offer 24-hour access to emails, the internet, word-processing packages and specialist mathematical software.
As well as support from our Teaching Officer, a lecturer will be assigned to act as your personal tutor, and will be available to offer guidance and advice.
You will also receive support from our Peer-Assisted Study Support (PASS) scheme designed to help you with the step up to university-level maths.
Assessment is mainly by written examination with some coursework. You may also be assessed through reports, computer-based assignments, essays or dissertations. Your final degree is based on marks obtained during your second and subsequent years of study.
Mathematics with Statistics named degree
If you take a sufficient number of statistics modules you will be eligible to receive a degree in Mathematics with Statistics. This route is available to all students our Mathematics BSc or Mathematics MMath courses and you do not have to opt for it explicitly when making your application through UCAS.
