Course details
Course UCAS code: GL1Y
Qualification type:
• BSc (Hons), Full-time With Time Abroad , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
This is a joint programme with the School of Economics and Finance. The first year consists of six modules of mathematics and statistics and two modules of economics; the second year provides four modules of mathematics and statistics and four modules of economics; and the final year includes at least three modules of mathematics and statistics and three modules of economics. Mathematics and economics are complementary subjects and, during the course of your studies, you will discover and be able to exploit the many links between them. Mathematics is concerned with finding patterns and solving problems. Every day we encounter patterns, which can be described using mathematics, for example, in numbers, shapes or data. We can use mathematics to identify these patterns, solve problems, inspire new technologies and make informed decisions. Mathematics is for people who are prepared to think logically and creatively and then explain those thoughts precisely. It is a demanding discipline: finding patterns and solving problems isn't always easy, but discovering the correct answer to a difficult problem is very rewarding. At university, you will discover a new world of concepts and ideas. You will encounter new kinds of mathematical objects and investigate their common features and abstract natures. But it is not all abstract: our statistics and finance modules are very much about the real world – you will use mathematical skills to extract information from data and draw conclusions.
Modules:
Year 1 Calculus I and II Essential Mathematical Skills Introduction to Probability Microeconomics I Numbers, Sets and Functions Principles of Economics Probability and Statistics I Vectors and Matrices
Assessment Methods:
Most of your modules will be assessed by an examination worth at least 90 per cent of the year's study, with the remainder covered by coursework and tests. Some BSc students will also complete a final-year project. Management modules are assessed using a combination of coursework (presentations, assignments, essay report writing, in-class tests, research and project work) and/or examinations in May or June.

It's very diverse in culture and backgrounds and reflects the London environment.
