Maths and Economics

Course Summary

Our Mathematics and Economics course concentrates on the core principles and foundations that underpin Mathematics and Economics. The main focus is on problem-solving techniques, critical thinking and mathematical reasoning skills. You will follow an innovative curriculum which is designed by University of Warwick academics. Each Mathematics and Economics module is specifically designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge required to be successful on an undergraduate course at university. Depending on the University route you would like to follow, the modules you will study include topics such as calculus, statistics, probability and economic theory.

The academic framework for Mathematics and Economics is provided by a combination of lectures, seminars and problem-solving classes. You will have plenty of contact with staff who will teach you with 19 hours per week of contact time and up to 4 hours per week of English Language. This will leave any remaining time for independent learning, researching and preparing for assessments, lectures and seminars. Assessments will take a variety of different forms allowing you to demonstrate the range of skills in which you are both confident and competent.

Successful completion of this course will equip you with the necessary skill to enter undergraduate degree courses related to Mathematics, Statistics, Business Studies, Economics and Engineering.
