Application Procedure

To be considered for a place on any of our degree schemes at Cardiff you should apply through UCAS, using the appropriate course code.

After we have received and considered your details we will invite you to visit the School. An informal discussion with a Mathematics lecturer will enable you to raise any questions you may have and allow us the opportunity of finding out more about your interests and ambitions.

The visit will include a guided tour of the School and the University campus, allowing you to see facilities such as the library, and Students' Union. You will also have the opportunity to talk to present students and find out what life as a Mathematics student is really like. If the dates we suggest for your visit are inconvenient, an alternative date can usually be arranged. If you are unable to visit we will consider making you an offer based only on the details on your UCAS application form. All those who visit receive a letter from us shortly afterwards giving details of our offer.

Most of our offers are conditional on A-level examination results, and there is a requirement for A2-level Mathematics or Pure Mathematics. We also welcome applications from students from overseas and from students who have the equivalent qualifications, such as BTEC, GNVQ, ACCESS, or International Baccalaureate. Applications from Mature Students (defined as those aged 21 or over in October of the year of entry) are also welcome.

Our current Standard Offer for those offering three A2 levels is usually grades AAB at A-level, with a grade A in Mathematics.
