Campus Taught

Studying alongside peers from related courses, you’ll spend your Mathematics Foundation Entry Year getting a broad introduction to modern mathematics.

You’ll develop basic mathematical skills, including core aspects of algebra, analysis and calculus, along with optional specialist modules like cryptology and mathematical biology.

You’ll be taught by research-active staff who are also members of the School’s Jeremiah Horrocks Institute.

At the end of your foundation year, and depending on your choice of optional modules, you can progress onto degree courses in mathematics, physics, astrophysics, engineering, or computing.

Why study with us

  • You’ll develop transferable study and job skills like teamwork and communication, problem-solving and self-management.
  • The Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications (IMA) give public seminars here so you can broaden your knowledge and learn about additional applications of mathematics.
  • Our Maths Society provides opportunities to solve mathematical problems, attend maths-related events and share your passion for maths.
