Course details
Course UCAS code: G1G8
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time Including Foundation Year , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
Our BA Mathematics with Computing (including foundation year) will be suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course and you want a programme that increases your subject knowledge as well as improves your academic skills in order to support your academic performance. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of study. During your Year Zero, you study three academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module, with additional English language for non-English speakers. After successful completion of Year Zero in our Essex Pathways Department, you progress to complete your course with our Department of Mathematical Sciences. Mathematics and computing are intertwined, and affect people's lives in ways you might not expect. Maths is the language that underpins the modern world and our BSc Mathematics with Computing is predominantly mathematical, backing this up with training in programming and algorithms. You’ll receive a good grounding in a broad range of subjects and have the flexibility to choose options according to your interests in both departments. This allows you to tailor your degree to your chosen specialism or preferred career path.
Modules:
Many of our courses offer a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning experience. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website.

Essex was amazing! The campus was seriously beautiful, had many a lovely afternoon sat by the lake on campus trying to revise. There’s a great community feel here, everyone is very friendly and there are amazing support services at the Union. Be sure to pick the right accommodation – if you’re ready to party every night, stay at the Towers, where no-one ever sleeps! If you’re a quieter type, the South Courts are a bit more relaxed although there’s still parties to be had. My teachers were also amazing, and I had a great time on my course.

    Top as it is a great uni, just stay in towers if you can to make 15 immediate friends and don't be afraid to go out-even if you don't drink, got to the SU bar

    Good the accomodation is nice and tidy, things are nice and neat. Services are laid out properly and neatly with maps to places you need to go. Things are spaced out and walking bertween them is easy enough. Things are spaced and not cramped all together which is also pretty nice.
