About Mathematics with Secondary Education (QTS) at University of Kent

Mathematics with Secondary Education (QTS) is part of an exciting collaboration between Kent and the Faculty of Education at Canterbury Christ Church University. You can specialise in mathematics and statistics while developing as a creative and reflective teacher at secondary level. Our degree programme You spend Year 1 studying alongside students on the BSc Mathematics programme at the University of Kent. We offer small group tutorials to help you with the transition from school to university-level maths. In Year 2, you attend the compulsory Mathematics Education module at Canterbury Christ Church. In addition, you continue studying a range of mathematics modules at Kent. During Year 3, most of your modules take place at Christ Church. But you also have the opportunity to undertake a project related to mathematics teaching at the University of Kent during the spring term. Please refer to the Canterbury Christ Church University website for more information about the structure of this programme. Study resources You have access to professional mathematical and statistical software such as Maple and R. Through Kent’s Templeman Library you also have access to a wide range of topical journals and books in hard copy and digital format. Your designated academic advisor provides guidance for your academic and professional development throughout your studies. You can also receive academic peer mentoring in your second year. Extra activities There are a number of student-led societies at Kent which you may want to join, for instance, the Kent Maths Society.

Teaching methods are varied, with a particular emphasis on student participation and active learning. Work in school is overseen by a mentor (an experienced teacher in the school) who liaises with a link tutor from the University.

During the programme you spend a significant amount of time learning to teach in schools and other education settings, which may be both local and international. There is a range of contrasting experiences of teaching in terms of age groups, type, size and location.

    Inspirational teaching - Patrique Tanque from Brazil is studying for a BSc in Forensic Chemistry.

    “Choosing Kent was an easy decision. The forensic programmes are ranked among the best in the UK and have a high graduate employment rate.

    “The teachers bring fresh ideas and up-to-date materials from real cases to enrich the lectures. They are keen to help out and always make sure we are getting plenty of support.

    “I was very fortunate to be awarded an International Scholarship, which meant I could dedicate myself to my studies.”

    Academic excellence - Stephanie Bourgeois from France is studying for a BSc in Biochemistry.

    “I like the approach to teaching here; academics are happy to answer questions and to interact with students. I find the lectures very motivational, they pique your curiosity and for me the exciting bit is going to the library and pursuing the things you are interested in.

    “The lecturers at Kent are excellent. You get to know them well and, as you move through the course, they are able to guide you towards projects, ideas or career paths that they think you will like.”

    Specialist research - Sally Gao from China is studying for a PhD in Electronic Engineering.

    “I have been very lucky with my supervisor, Professor Yong Yan, who is a world-class expert and the first IEEE Fellow in the UK in instrumentation and measurement.

    “Professor Yong Yan has helped me to become a better researcher. I am inspired by his novel ideas and constructive suggestions. Under his supervision, my confidence has grown through such milestones as my first set of experiments, writing my first research paper and attending my first conference.”
