Bishop Grosseteste University



Mathematics is vital in modern society, underpinning our understanding of the sciences, engineering, technology, finance and many other aspects of our everyday lives. Good mathematicians are in short supply and we aim to provide you with the tools you need to make a real difference in the world and to those around you.

This course will not only develop your mathematical and practical skills and your understanding of teaching, learning and education; it will also allow you to share your enthusiasm to inspire others. With the support of dedicated and professional staff, you will study numerous aspects of both pure and applied mathematics and, in doing so, gain a good overall appreciation for the subject. There are also opportunities to work with the latest teaching technologies and apply your knowledge and skills in appropriate work placements.

Here at BGU, the learning experience is very different to larger universities where mathematics is typically lectured to large groups. Our tutors are very accessible and you can be sure you’ll receive all the support you need. You’ll be encouraged to understand and enjoy mathematics rather than be pressured to remember rules and algorithms, and the content is balanced to provide a good grounding in pure and applied mathematics.

 We have experienced and dedicated staff who are passionate about mathematics and will work extremely hard to transmit that enthusiasm to you. This course is ideal if you take satisfaction from solving problems and would love to pass on your enthusiasm to others.
