ABOUT THE COURSE
Mathematics is a fascinating and exciting subject. It is the language of modern business and commerce, engineering, science and technology and is as old as mankind. At Liverpool Hope, you will develop a passion and enthusiasm for mathematics and its applications. Mathematics encompasses many analytical and numerical methods that are used to solve scientific and industrial problems.
Mathematics at Liverpool Hope has been designed to help you develop strong analytical and numerate abilities and skills so that you learn how to look at problems, break them down into simpler questions and then solve them. The degree will cover all areas of mathematics including pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics.
By the end of the degree, you will be confident in tackling real world problems mathematically. By studying with us, you can expect to be given not only first class tuition and teaching, but first class support. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent student experience, and the tutors at Liverpool Hope work hard to ensure that you get the most from your degree.
Teaching on this degree is structured into lectures, where all students are taught together, seminars of smaller groups of around 15-20 students, and tutorials which typically have no more than 10 students. You spend your third year on placement.
In your first year of study, there are approximately 12 teaching hours each week, which reduces to approximately 10 teaching hours in your second and fourth years.
On top of teaching hours, you are also expected to spend a number of hours studying independently each week, as well as studying in groups to prepare for any group assessments you may have.
ASSESSMENT AND FEEDBACK
There are a number of assessments across your four years of study, including written exams, portfolios, and coursework.
You will be given feedback on your assessments, and you will have the opportunity to discuss this with your tutor in more detail.
The Foundation Year is a great opportunity if you have the ability and enthusiasm to study for a degree, but do not yet have the qualifications required to enter directly onto our degree programmes. A significant part of the Foundation Year focuses upon core skills such as academic writing at HE level, becoming an independent learner, structuring academic work, critical thinking, time management and note taking.
Successful completion of the Foundation Year will enable you to progress into the first year (Level C) of your chosen honours degree. Further details can be found here.

As a Liverpool Hope Mathematics graduate, you will be highly competent in abstraction, analysis of structure and logical thinking. You will also have expertise in formulating and solving problems. You will have focused on the use of mathematics in solving real-world problems that arise in industrial, commercial, physical, biological and educational contexts and, as a highly numerate graduate, you will be in great demand from employers.
In the 2019 Complete University Guide, 93% of our mathematics graduates were either in employment or in further study within 6 months of graduating, placing us 3rd in the country for mathematics graduate employment. Some of our past graduates have gone on to further study, and there are opportunities to study at Liverpool Hope for taught Masters such as MSc Mathematics, as well as Doctoral research-based qualifications.
Work Placement Opportunities
This degree includes a compulsory year in industry placement, giving you the opportunity to gain real workplace skills highly sought after by employers.
The Service and Leadership Award (SALA) is offered as an extra-curricular programme involving service-based experiences, development of leadership potential and equipping you for a career in a rapidly changing world. It enhances your degree, it is something which is complimentary but different and which has a distinct ‘value-added’ component. Find out more on our Service and Leadership Award page.
As part of your degree, you can choose to spend either a semester or a full year of study at one of our partner universities as part of our Study Abroad programme. Find out more on our Study Abroad page.
The tuition fees for the 2021/22 academic year are £9,250 for full-time undergraduate courses.
If you are a student from the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands, your tuition fees will also be £9,250.
