Course Summary:
Mathematics and statistics underpin all aspects of modern life: advances in science, innovations in medicine, new technology, and business. A placement year offers you the chance to apply the knowledge you've gained in your first two years and will prepare you for a wide range of rewarding career opportunities. Mathematics and statistics allow us to understand our world at the most fundamental level. Studying these subjects provides us with information in its purest form, giving us answers to problems from all aspects of life. You can learn to study and predict patterns and changes in everything, including human behaviour, plant growth, chemical reactions, and stocks and shares. As a result, an advanced understanding of maths and stats is highly sort after in a range of industries. During your first year, you will build on your previous knowledge and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts. Modules cover a wide range of topics from calculus, probability and statistics to logic, proofs and theorems. As well as developing your technical knowledge and mathematical skills, you will also enhance your data analysis, problem-solving and quantitative reasoning skills. To prepare you for your third year placement, you'll undertake the Preparation for Placement module which provides guidance on writing your CV, finding a placement and interview techniques. In the second year, you will further develop your knowledge in analysis, algebra, probability and statistics. You will also be introduced to Computational Mathematics, exploring the theory and application of computation and numerical problem-solving methods. While studying these topics, you will complete our Project Skills module, which provides you with the chance to enhance your research and employment skills through an individual and group project. Additionally, you will gain experience of scientific writing, and you will practise using statistical software such as R and LaTeX. In Lent term you'll complete the Work Based Learning Preparation module which covers topics such as workplace structures, handling difficult conversations and the importance of being a reflective practitioner. In third year you will undertake a 12 month placement which will allow you to apply the knowledge and skills that you've learnt in Years 1 and 2, and to gain invaluable experience which will make you highly employable when you graduate. Our Faculty Placements Team and Careers service will support you in securing your placement, which will be of graduate level, and will continue to support you throughout the year to ensure that you are getting the most out of your year away from Lancaster. As well as your paid employment, you will submit monthly learning logs reflecting on your experience. Your final year offers a wide range of specialist optional modules, allowing you to develop and drive the programme to suit your interests and guide you to a specific career pathway. You will have the chance to apply the skills and knowledge you have gained in the first two years in advanced mathematical modules such as Combinatorics, Number Theory, Medical Statistics and Stochastic Processes. Looking back at your placement year, you will also complete a portfolio of work-based learning reflections such as the skills you've developed and the experiences you've had, and how this has impacted upon your future aspirations.
