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.

Depending on your interests, and your qualifications you can take a variety of routes to this degree:

International Foundation in Physical Sciences and Engineering

International Foundation in Mathematics and Actuarial Sciences

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.

Our four-year integrated Masters course is ideal if you want to take your studies to the next level and prepare to work in academia or research. Going into greater depth than our three-year BSc programme, it’s a flexible course that allows you to specialise in either pure or applied mathematics, or a combination of the two. In your final year you’ll take on a substantial research project. This will give you experience in independent study and help develop key career skills such as report writing and oral presentation. So you’ll not only graduate with a deep understanding of mathematics, but with great career prospects too. At UEA you’ll also benefit from internationally recognised, research-led teaching and a high academic staff to student ratio. Lectures are complemented by small group teaching in your first year and regular workshops in later years, ensuring you get quality contact time with our world-class lecturers.
