Want to study Mathematics at university but donât have the grades? The Foundation route is designed for applicants who do not meet the admissions criteria for our BSc (Hons) Mathematics. This additional year focuses on key material from A-Level Mathematics, its applications and a number of more advanced topics.
The Foundation Maths course will involve a large number of contact hours with Mathematics staff to ensure you are properly supported. Successfully passing the Foundation year guarantees you entry onto the first year of our BSc Mathematics course where you will build upon and apply the knowledge gained during the Foundation year. Our BSc and MMath Maths degrees are accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.

I was on the Cardiff campus, and it’s such a lovely city. There’s loads of great clubs, like Clwb Ifor Bach (That’s ‘The Welsh Club) holds loads of different nights, or Full Moon across the road if you fancy seeing some great local bands. There’s also the world’s oldest record shop, Spillers, which is an amazing way to burn through your student loan, as well as some lovely restaurants in the Castle and Morgan Arcades. The course was amazing too, felt very welcome and was able to grow academically thanks to the fantastic teachers.
