Study Abroad

We offer overseas students interested in coming to the UK to study with us the chance to participate in our bespoke 'Studyabroad@Social Sciences' pathways.

Mathematical Sciences Pathways

The School of Mathematical Sciences is a broad-based school with world-class research in Applied Mathematics, Operational Research, Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Theoretical Physics. The modules on offer in our Study Abroad pathways reflect this breadth and excellence and allow each student to create a programme of study tailored to their mathematical interests and strengths. The programmes provide students with both mathematical knowledge and skills in analytical and structured thinking and in problem solving.

Each of the pathways can be studied for one or two semesters and involve the study of four modules per semester. Each module will typically consist of three lectures per week with another weekly class focusing on problem solving. Assessments are a mixture of end-of-semester examinations, mid-term tests, projects and assignments.

It is expected that students enrolling on either pathway have a good background knowledge of calculus (single variable and multivariable) and linear algebra. On the Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research pathway a basic knowledge of probability and statistics is also necessary.
