How you're taught
We want you to graduate with a range of transferable skills, so all of the mathematics modules have two or three assessment components that help you to demonstrate your knowledge in a variety of ways. As well as traditional exams and in-class tests, you'll complete assignments and group projects, and give presentations. In your final year, you'll also complete your final project with the support of your personal tutor.
