We are delighted that this year the School of Mathematical Sciences is hosting its first Year 11 Maths Summer Schools.

Summer Schools give students a valuable opportunity to familiarise themselves with a university campus, gain a more in-depth understanding of a subject they enjoy studying and meet new friends.

The students' introduction to university life will include the chance to discover some new areas of mathematics, complete problem-solving tasks and mini-research projects to develop their understanding of university-style learning and teaching.

Students writing

When speaking to prospective students considering their university options, we often hear that one of the most valuable experiences in gaining a better understanding of a university is the opportunity to talk with current students who can give their first-hand perspective on the best and the more challenging aspects of university life.
