Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics with French

On this BSc Mathematics with French degree you'll spend your a year in France or Belgium, studying at one of our partner universities. This degree is a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in French, while developing your mathematical problem-solving skills. You’ll study pure and applied maths, statistics and operational research. You’ll graduate with sought after skills and experience of working and studying in another language.

This course is varied and covers the foundations of algebra, calculus and statistics. You’ll investigate the applications of mathematics in a variety of contexts and use mathematical and statistical models.

As part of this course you’ll:

  • be able to specialise in pure or applied mathematics, operational research or statistics
  • become proficient in French, understanding subtleties and conversing easily in the language, both formally and informally
  • spend your third year at one of our Erasmus partner institutions in Liege, Lille or Paris
  • use university's student centre, a dedicated learning and social space for maths students
  • use mathematical and computational packages such as Python and the statistics package 'R'

You’ll be taught through a combination of lectures and workshops, by leading researchers in fields, such as group theory, the mathematics of nature and experimental design.
