This is a four year programme with the first year being a foundation year taken at Carmel College. After completion of the first year you can then progress on to your chosen programme within the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
A degree in Mathematical Sciences from the University of Liverpool is a highly regarded qualification that will open many doors. From core maths to theoretical physics, financial maths to biostatistics, you can choose quality programmes and options that match your ambitions.
This programme provides a four-year route to a number of BSc (Hons) degree programmes offered in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. For the first year you will be based at Carmel College, St Helens.
Students follow the Foundation Year (at Carmel College) and then can opt to follow one of a wide range of mathematical sciences programmes offered. Carmel College, St Helens, about nine miles from the university campus, offers small class sizes and high standards of academic achievement.

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.
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.
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.
