Foundation Entry Year

During your Foundation Entry Year you will study alongside peers from related courses, whilst you gain a broad introduction to modern mathematics. You will develop your basic mathematical skills on this course which comprises core aspects of algebra, analysis and calculus, along with a range of optional specialist modules such as cryptology and mathematical biology. You’ll be taught by research-active staff who are also members of the Jeremiah Horrocks Institute within the School. The Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications (IMA) run regular public seminars at UCLan so you can broaden your knowledge and learn additional applications of mathematics. At the end of the foundation year you can progress onto the mathematics degree, or onto a degree in physics, astrophysics, engineering, or computing, depending on your choice of optional modules. 

For detailed information about studying this course at the University of Central Lancashire, please see the course specification and course handbook for your year of entry: 2016.
