Mathematics (Including Foundation Year) – BSc (Hons)

Why study this course?

The Mathematics (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0), an ideal choice if you don’t have the necessary qualifications to study a standard degree. This foundation course is accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA). This course will provide you with a range of practical skills in mathematics as well as work experience which will be invaluable to you when embarking on a career related to mathematics.

More about this course

Our Mathematics (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree begins with a preparatory year designed to build your confidence and academic capabilities while helping you gain skills in several areas. This preparatory year will help you attain all the base knowledge you’ll need to succeed during the rest of your course.

The foundation year on this course is shared with other foundation year degrees. In this preparatory year you’ll learn a variety of skills across different subjects, including cyber security, computer networks, mathematics and programming, helping you to build an understanding of the fundamentals of mathematics.

If you find yourself more interested in a different area of mathematics or computing following your foundation year there is the option to specialise.

Following your foundation year, you’ll study the same course content and get the same choice of modules as those who study Mathematics BSc (Hons) degree.

You’ll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.
