About the Pathway

Specific A Level Entry Requirements: Mathematics

Lancaster is one of the UK's major centres in mathematics and statistics and has earned a well-deserved reputation for top-quality teaching and world-class research.

For more information, please read our guide on how Pathways work. The following modules are for entry year 2025.

Single Mathematics

Specific A Level Entry Requirements: Mathematics

This Pathway allows you to continue your study of maths at degree level in a top-ranking department. You’ll focus on both pure mathematics and statistics with an emphasis on solving practical mathematical problems.

Double Mathematics

Specific A Level Entry Requirements: Mathematics

Double Weighted Pathway: 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. Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and some which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme to complement your main specialism.

Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, and the University will make every reasonable effort to offer modules as advertised. In some cases changes may be necessary and may result in some combinations being unavailable, for example as a result of student feedback, timetabling, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes and new research. Not all optional modules are available every year.
