Foundation entry

We’re one of a few universities in the North West to offer a Mathematics degree which allows you to choose from a range of pure, applied and statistics modules throughout the course.

Why study with us

  • You’ll be taught in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere. We have a low student-to-staff ratio, so you will benefit from individual support.
  • As you progress, you have the chance to explore specialist areas such as cryptology, fluid dynamics and mathematical biology.
  • Our courses are delivered though engaging lectures, problem-solving tutorials and practical sessions by staff with doctoral research degrees.

Maths degree course

  • You can take part in our undergraduate research internship scheme and 48-week industry placement in between your second and third years.
  • In your third year, you'll have the choice of completing an individual project or a teaching placement. Our teaching placement (the Undergraduate Ambassador Scheme) is a great way to get experience in teaching.
  • If you choose to complete an individual project, you'll explore an area of interest under the guidance of a supervisor.


In year 3 you will choose to complete one of the compulsory modules either MA3881 or MA3999.
