BSc (Hons) Mathematics with Education with Foundation Year

Why choose this course?

Mathematics skills are highly relevant not only to the needs of business and industry but also to modern education. Start your studies with a foundation year so that you are fully prepared to succeed on this distinctive degree which opens up a wide range of career pathways. 

  • Take a foundation year if you feel you are not quite ready to join our three-year honours degree and would like to build your skills, knowledge and confidence first
  • Combine a thorough understanding of concepts in mathematics, statistics and operational research with a critical awareness of educational issues
  • Take an optional placement year for invaluable insights into how your knowledge and skills can be applied in the workplace
  • Be inspired by our friendly, supportive lecturers who make learning maths fun
  • Get involved in far-reaching projects such as the ALICE experiment, on which we are working in partnership with leading organisations at CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research
  • Develop high-level skills in problem solving, research and information technology, drawing on real-world scenarios
  • Prepare for a fulfilling career: our graduates are now excelling everywhere from the teaching profession to the London Stock Exchange
  • Become a highly employable graduate – we are ranked 15th highest among all UK universities and 12th for English institutions, with 96% of graduates in work or further study within six months of completing their degree (HESA 2016)
