Program description

Mathematical Sciences (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Mathematical Sciences (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) explores the modern application of mathematics in different disciplines, including finance, programming, project management and statistics.

This four-year bachelor’s course is suitable if you don’t have traditional qualifications or can’t meet the necessary requirements to enter our standard three-year degree. It has a built-in foundation year, which is designed to prepare you for study at undergraduate level by equipping you with basic skills in mathematics and its applications, such as computer science.

Our Mathematical Sciences (including foundation year) BSc is very practical and employment focused, providing you with mathematical skills and knowledge that is directly applicable in the workplace.

During your time at the University you’ll be able to take advantage of the academic and pastoral support on offer from your tutors and academic mentors. There will also be opportunities to attend career-related workshops, including those that concentrate on improving your interview skills and adopting best practice in writing job applications.

Your foundation year will be shared with students from other disciplines within the School of Computing and Digital Media, so you’ll get the opportunity to discuss the different applications of mathematics with other students.

In Year 0 (the foundation year) you’ll explore subjects that rely on the application of mathematical knowledge and learn fundamental skills in cyber security, programming and mathematics. You’ll also be introduced to robotics and the Internet of Things (IoT). These topics will provide you with a multitude of transferable skills as you’ll get to practise in electrical workshops, explore fundamental theoretical concepts and use a range of mathematical techniques.

During the subsequent three years of your studies you’ll have the same choice of modules and study the same content as students on the Mathematical Sciences BSc (Hons). You’ll also graduate with the same award and title as students on this course.

If, at the end of your foundation year, you’d like to change your specialism to a different subject within the School of Computing and Digital Media, there will be some flexibility to allow you to do this.

Admission requirements

In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:

  • At least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
  • English Language and Mathematics GCSE at grade C/grade 4 or above (or equivalent, eg Functional Skills at Level 2) – if you meet UCAS points criteria but obtained a grade D/3 in English and/or Maths at GCSE you may be offered a University test in these areas
