All our degree courses share the same compulsory modules in years 1 and 2, making it easy to switch between them. Applicants who have not studied mathematics at A-level can apply for the Engineering/Physics/Mathematics Foundation Year. A foundation year will give you the skills and knowledge to progress to this course if you don’t have the right qualifications for direct entry. There’s also an informal lab, with group-work areas, projectors and whiteboards.
