Course Description

Our foundation year course is designed to help you progress to a challenging and exciting career in computing or mathematics. Our carefully designed curriculum is particularly suitable for those who want to change direction, perhaps having taken A-levels in arts or humanities subjects, and for mature applicants returning to study. You will quickly find that willingness to learn and determination is more important than prior knowledge.

At Brunel we understand that you may not be ready to decide exactly which area of mathematics or computing you would like to specialise in, so this foundation year gives you the perfect opportunity to decide where your interests lie. You might opt for computer science and work with ever more sophisticated computer technology and information systems. Or you may find yourself drawn to mathematics where you’ll learn to model and solve problems from the worlds of business, finance and science. Once you have successfully completed your foundation year you can progress to any of the following degree programmes:

The Business Computing BSc (with the option to specialise in Business, eBusiness, Human Computer Interaction or Social Media) Computer Science BSc (with the option to specialise in Artificial Intelligence, Digital Media and Games, Network Computing or Software Engineering) Financial Mathematics BSc/MMath Mathematics BSc/MMath Mathematics with Computer Science BSc Mathematics and Statistics with Management BSc

With the grades needed for your chosen computing or mathematics degree course, you progress directly into Year 1 of that degree – there’s no need to re-apply.

We look forward to helping you develop your learning and setting you firmly on the way to your chosen career.

This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught masters degrees.
