Foundation in Mathematics
This Foundation Year in Mathematics will give you the skills and knowledge required to progress onto an undergraduate degree in Mathematics, such as our BSc Mathematics course.
This course will start with a thorough revision of GCSE and A-level Mathematics and will continue with an introduction to university mathematics. Furthermore, you will learn transferable skills that are key for undergraduate studies in Mathematics such as coding or data analysis. These skills are in high demand by employers in exponentially growing sectors.
During this 1 year course, you will study an introduction to;
- data analysis
- computer programming, or coding
- linear algebra and calculus
- probability and statistics, with applications to the real world
- and university level mathematics.
You will learn how to use software to solve mathematical problems and find solutions. Your problem solving skills will be enhanced and you'll gain analytical skills that will be pivotal to progressing onto further study.

Learning and assessment
The assessment of all the Mathematics modules has been carefully designed to encourage you to act on feedback and reward progress. Moreover, in modules such as Basic Data Analysis or Foundations of Computer Programming, the assessment methods will align with those used in the undergraduate programme, so that you can familiarise well with writing reports on data analysis as well as assignments requiring writing code.
