All applications should be made through UCAS (link []).

The standard AGCE offer for all Single Honours Mathematics degree schemes is AAB, with an A in Mathematics, or A*BB/A*AC with an A* in Mathematics, with the exception of the MMath degree scheme for which the asking grades are AAA or A*AB with an A in Mathematics. There is no requirement for students to have taken Further Maths at A level.

For applicants taking the Welsh Baccalaureate, the typical offer is A in Mathematics, A in another subject and a pass in the Welsh Baccalaureate (or A* in Mathematics and B in another subject). General Studies and Critical Thinking are excluded from the offer. The corresponding IB offer is 34 points overall with at least 6 in Higher Level Mathematics. A minimum C grade in GCSE English is normally required. We also welcome applications from students from overseas and from students who have equivalent qualifications, such as BTEC, GNVQ, ACCESS, etc.

The school currently has approximately 170 places available for undergraduate students.

Applicants with non-standard qualifications should contact one of the admissions tutors
Dr Jonathan Thompson or Mrs Vicky Reynish for more information.

Offers may vary from those stated above in circumstances where the Admissions Tutors agree that the candidate can demonstrate their ability / potential in other ways.

Applications for deferred entry are acceptable and the same selection criteria will be applied. Application is made through UCAS in the usual way, although the UCAS form should be amended clearly to show the intention to defer. All UCAS forms are read independently by two academic members of the Admissions Team. Achieved or predicted grades form the basis of the decision making process. Offers are made to all applicants whose UCAS forms show evidence of their capacity or potential to benefit from our degree programmes. The Personal Statement is used primarily to identify any exceptional circumstances that may need to be taken into account but extra activities and achievements (musical, sporting etc.) may also be noted.

Applicants who are to be made an offer are invited to visit on one of our Open Days. Invitations are normally sent out within four weeks of the Admissions Tutors receiving the UCAS form. The visit includes a guided tour of the School and the University campus, allowing applicants to see facilities such as the library, and Students' Union. They also have the opportunity to talk to present students and find out what life as a Mathematics student is really like.

The standard offer for Joint Honours degree schemes is as follows; in all cases an A grade in Mathematics is required:

In the case of applicants whose first language is not English, competence in the English language is also a criterion of admission. More information is available here.
