At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We're proud to be 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Education and Mathematics.
If you are interested in teaching Mathematics as a subject but also in increasing the wider awareness of the ways in which Mathematics is advancing our lives, then this course is for you. You will explore pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics, against the wider background of issues surrounding education today. Over the three years of study (four if you decide to do the International Year), you will learn to evaluate key educational concepts, theories and
issues of policy in a systematic way. You will learn about their application to understand ways in which maths can be learnt and taught.
In your first year, you will study core material in calculus and algebra. In subsequent years you can begin to tailor your programme according to your own strengths or interests. For example, you can specialise in pure or applied mathematics, or explore probability and modelling.
When you graduate, you might choose to do a PGCE and become a Maths teacher. There are also other opportunities, including jobs in banking, the civil service, computing, financial services and retail. You may also wish to pursue a further academic career and become a researcher or a policy analyst. During your studies, you may wish to learn a foreign language and gain an enhanced degree title or opt for a year abroad to enhance your CV. To find out more please visit keele.ac.uk/lc
