Assessment for Year 1

We employ a variety of assessment methods; the method we use is determined by the module in question. They range from 100% coursework to 100% examination, with most Mathematics modules combining 60-80% examination and 20-40% coursework.

The coursework component is usually made up of problems set from an example sheet, which will be handed in, marked and returned, together with the solutions. For some modules there are also programming assignments and/or class tests.

Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

GCSE offer

You are required to have Mathematics and English Language at a minimum of Grade C or Grade 4 or above at GCSE.

Additional entry requirements

General Studies and Critical Thinking A Levels are not accepted. 

Alternative Qualifications

UEA recognises that some students take a mixture of International Baccalaureate IB or International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme IBCP study rather than the full diploma, taking Higher levels in addition to A levels and/or BTEC qualifications. At UEA we do consider a combination of qualifications for entry, provided a minimum of three qualifications are taken at a higher Level. In addition some degree programmes require specific subjects at a higher level.

We welcome applications from students with non-traditional academic backgrounds.  If you have been out of study for the last three years and you do not have the entry grades for our three year degree, we will consider your educational and employment history, along with your personal statement and reference to gain a holistic view of your suitability for the course. You will still need to meet our GCSE English Language and Mathematics requirements.

If you are currently studying your level 3 qualifications, we may be able to give you a reduced grade offer based on these circumstances:

  • You live in an area with low progression to higher education (we use Polar 4, quintile 1 & 2 data)

  • You will be 21 years of age or over at the start of the course

  • You have been in care or you are a young full time carer

  • You are studying at a school which our Outreach Team are working closely with

Students for whom english is a foreign language

Applications from students whose first language is not English are welcome. We require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading):

  • IELTS: 6.5 overall (minimum 5.5 in all components)

We also accept a number of other English language tests. Please click here to see our full list.

Interviews

Most applicants will not be called for an interview and a decision will be made via UCAS Track. However, for some applicants an interview will be requested. Where an interview is required the Admissions Service will contact you directly to arrange a time.

Gap year

We welcome applications from students who have already taken or intend to take a gap year.  We believe that a year between school and university can be of substantial benefit. You are advised to indicate your reason for wishing to defer entry on your UCAS application.

Mathematics is one of the most fundamental and important academic disciplines. So we believe it’s crucial that higher mathematics education is available to anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of it – whether you’re a mature student looking for a career change or to get deeper into a lifelong passion, or someone leaving education without the A levels you needs to go straight into a degree. During your Foundation Year you will focus on the essential concepts, techniques and knowledge you’ll need to progress onto studying mathematics at a higher level – including basic algebra, notation, vectors trigonometry, and calculus. You will also take optional introductory modules in computing, chemistry and/or physics.
