Frequently asked questions

How flexible is the Mathematics degree course programme? Can I still switch after some time e.g. to ‘Year Abroad’ and ‘With Industry’ options?

Our degree programme in Mathematics is very flexible and you can still change e.g. from BSc Mathematics to BSc Mathematics with ‘Year Abroad’ or ‘With industry’ within the first semester without problems.

There will be special sessions organised in the first semester for all those students already on the ‘Year Abroad or ‘With Industry’ programmes and anybody who might be interested in these options.

Where can students can go for the Year Abroad option?

There are several partner universities in the USA and Europe where we have exchange arrangements with. Our students currently have the option to study in Toulouse (France), Hamburg (Germany), the Netherlands and a choice of several locations in the USA.

How is the year in industry organised for students taking the ‘With Industry’ option?

We have a dedicated tutor in the school who will guide you through the preparations from the first year on. Detailed information can be found here:

How is the tutorial system organised in Mathematics at the University of Leicester?

Every student has a personal tutor throughout their study who is an academic, but at Leicester you will be also part of an innovative family tutorial system. In particular in the first year.

Students will be part of a group together with students in higher semesters and postgraduate students who will engage with students in small peer support and feedback sessions.

How many students start normally in the first year of studies in Mathematics?

In Leicester we have about 100 to 110 first year students starting each year over all our degree programmes in mathematics. You will be taught and supported in small sized group sessions which makes the transfer from school to university especially smooth and easy.
