Accreditation has been awarded to two Mathematics programmes at Liverpool Hope University, by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA).
The University’s MMath (Hons) Mathematics degree is now accredited to meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation awarded by the IMA.
Meanwhile, the BSc (Hons) Mathematics with a Year in Industry programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the IMA, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency.
Professor Atulya Nagar, Dean of Science, said: “The Mathematics degree at Liverpool Hope equips our students to think logically to solve problems, which is why mathematics graduates are in such high demand across a wide range of careers – from Banking to Engineering and Bio-Medical Sciences.
“This formal accreditation from the IMA confirms that our teaching meets the very highest standards, and also offers employers the confidence that they are recruiting high-calibre Mathematics graduates. The IMA accreditation means that students on the MMath programme are now able to apply immediately for Chartered Mathematician (CMath) status on completion of their degree, whilst those graduating from the BSc in Mathematics can apply for CMath status after further relevant training and experience.”
Liverpool Hope’s single honours BSc (Hons) Mathematics programme is also accredited by the IMA.
