BSc (Hons), Sandwich Including Foundation Year
, Duration: 5 Years
Study your foundation year, then progress to a degree with industry accreditation from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA).
Learn about real-life applications of mathematics, including mathematical and numerical approaches to modelling, problem-solving, and statistical methods.
Use technology to apply mathematical techniques, and develop your analysis and interpretation skills to provide solutions.
Work as part of a learning community within a maths-specific shared learning space.
On this course you learn how to use mathematics to solve problems in the real world â which could include environmental, medical, industrial and commercial contexts. In the real world, a problem is rarely presented mathematically. On this applied course you learn how to tackle these types of problems, preparing you for the workplace.
**How you learn**
The course is suitable if you donât meet the entry requirements for our BSc (Hons) Mathematics course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other engineering, maths and physics foundation year students, then move on to the degree.
We want our graduates to succeed, so you engage with activities that help develop skills in solving problems as well as communicating outputs from them. These include group work, oral presentations, and poster creation. Throughout the degree you develop a range of practical skills, including communication, teamwork and problem-solving.
You learn through
- IT sessions
- problem-based and practical activity-based sessions
- group and individual project work
- the opportunity to act as a mentor for other students
- progress meetings
- reflective action planning
- written or electronic coursework assignments
- in-class tests
In the foundation year, youâll study the fundamental mathematical principles that youâll need at undergraduate level, and apply them to a range of different topics. Youâll learn through many of the same techniques used on the degree course, and familiarise yourself with Sheffield Hallam and its facilities â ensuring that youâre ready to hit the ground running.
You will have the opportunity to arrange a year-long work placement in between your third and fourth years. This gives you a real-world experience to prepare you for your future career and a salary of up to Â£22000 for the year. Students have been on placement at
- NHS England
- Department of Health
- Royal Mail
There are plenty of opportunities locally, but students have gone as far as China for their placement.
We will help you decide whether undertaking a placement is right for you, and will support you in making applications. This is your chance to apply your academic knowledge in the work environment and improve your career prospects. It can even lead to the offer of a permanent job with your placement employer.
You have opportunities throughout the course to gain practical experience. The course has an applied focus, so you will look at solving real-life problems such as developing a model for a health epidemic, using data in credit scoring, creating sports fixture lists, and many others.
**Support and learning environment**
We have a strong, supportive learning community, based on excellent staff-student relations. This is helped by a maths-specific shared learning space, designed to combine student workspace with staff office space. As well as having easy access to your lecturers, you work closely with other students in a supportive environment. We aim to provide opportunities to mix outside of formal teaching time.
The modules for 2020/21 may vary to those given below, which are for academic year 2019/20.
You can take an optional placement in year three.
