Discover what you'll learn, what you'll study, and how you'll be taught and assessed.
The first year you will be based at Carmel College. At the College you will follow three foundation modules chosen from Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology or Geography. Your module choice depends on the programme you wish to follow after the foundation year.
How you'll learn
You will be taught through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, practical classes, problem classes, private study and supervised project work. In year one, lectures are supplemented by group tutorials and computing work is carried out in supervised practical classes.
Key study skills, presentation skills and group work start in first-year tutorials and are developed later in the programme. The emphasis in most modules is on the development of problem solving skills, which are regarded very highly by employers. Project supervision is on a one-to-one basis, apart from group projects in year two.
How you're assessed
Most modules are assessed by a two and a half hour examination in January or May, but many have an element of coursework assessment. This might be through homework, class tests, mini-project work or key skills exercises.
We have a distinctive approach to education, the Liverpool Curriculum Framework, which focuses on research-connected teaching, active learning, and authentic assessment to ensure our students graduate as digitally fluent and confident global citizens.
Studying with us means you can tailor your degree to suit you. Here's what is available on this course.
You will be taught by internationally recognised experts within a friendly department.
Your course will be delivered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
