Double Mathematics

If you wish to focus your studies on mathematics, we also offer a double-weighted pathway that allows you to study the subject in greater detail. This incorporates the modules listed above and gives students the opportunity to concentrate on theoretical problems.

As a double-weighted Pathway you can only take one other Pathway with this option.

To study on any particular Pathway you must meet the entry requirements of that subject. The information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
