About Mathematics with a Year in Industry at University of Kent

Our Year in Industry programme enables you to gain paid industry experience in addition to being taught by our internationally-renowned mathematicians and statisticians, ensuring that you are fully prepared for your future career.

You will be encouraged to fulfil your potential whilst studying in our friendly and dynamic school based in the multi-award-winning Sibson Building.

Our degree programme

To help bridge the gap between school and university, you’ll attend small group tutorials in Stage 1, where you can practice the new mathematics you’ll be learning, ask questions and work with other students to find solutions. You’ll study a mixture of pure and applied mathematics, and statistics, providing you with a solid foundation for your later studies.

In Stage 2, you study some core modules which build upon the material learnt at Stage 1. You also start to tailor your degree to your interests through our range of optional modules.

Throughout Stages 1 and 2, you attend specialist programme of workshops and events designed to ensure you have the best possible opportunity of securing a placement. Our in-house Placements Team will support you throughout the process. If you successfully secure a placement, you will spend a year working between Stages 2 and 3.   

In Stage 3 you return from your placement and continue to explore the areas you enjoy through our optional modules. 

Accreditation

This degree meets the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competencies to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master’s degrees.
