Overview

Year one of the Mathematics course from University of Bristol consists of compulsory topics, covered in lectures, small-group tutorials and working through exercises independently and with peers, as well as freedom to investigate a range of topics in collaboration with your personal tutor and fellow students. 

In your second and third year you can start to choose some topics that are of particular interest to you, meaning you can continue with a varied degree or choose to specialise.  After year one you can vary your degree with a choice of units outside mathematics. 

After your first year, support for your studies continues in the form of drop-in sessions with lecturers, exercise and feedback classes and student-led Maths Cafés.
