In Semesters 1-3, you’ll take Mathematics plus two other subjects. Material covered at secondary level is reviewed and applied before being developed further, ensuring a smooth transition from a school teaching approach to a university one.
You’ll take core modules in: Calculus of One and Several Variables; Vectors, Matrices, Complex Numbers and their Application in Geometry and Systems Theory; Statistics and Probability; and Analysis. You can also opt to take an additional mathematics module in Discrete Structures.
In Semesters 4-8, the Applied Mathematics Honours course covers a broad range of skills. Advanced modules cover the following key areas: mathematical techniques for solving a wide range of problems; the theory underlying these mathematical techniques; and model-building, for example, converting real-world problems into mathematical form. This will include projects that allow further development of skills in areas of applied mathematics.
2023 entry requirements:
4 Highers at ABBB (first sitting) or AABB (two sittings) including Maths.
For entry to the three year Honours degree, you will require 3 Advanced Highers at ABB including Maths.
