**Why study this course?**

If you want to study an undergraduate mathematics degree but don't have the required qualifications for a standard three year degree, this accredited course is designed to help. It includes a foundation year which covers the foundations of mathematics necessary for further study. Pass successfully, and you will then begin one of our undergraduate mathematics courses. Depending on what you choose, you could be learning more about algebra, calculus, cryptography, computational mathematics and more. Our in-house careers unit can also help you get crucial work experience. London Met has connections to major companies including Microsoft, CISCO and IBM.

**More about this course**

This accredited four year extended degree introduces you to the fundamentals of mathematics before continuing onto one of London Met's undergraduate courses.

In the foundation year (Year 0), you'll learn the basics of programming, cyber attack prevention, computer networking and mathematics. We'll show you a range of mathematical techniques involving algebraic properties and graphs of the algebraic, logarithm, exponential and trigonometric functions. By understanding how to use precise mathematical arguments and solutions with the right notational and stylistic conventions, you'll be ready for further undergraduate study.

Our mathematics degrees are supported by a range of specialists. The staff include maths and programming lecturers, learning managers, academic mentors, success coaches and personal academic tutors.

When you join London Met, you'll have access to world class facilities. We have highly advanced CISCO labs, an IT security and forensics lab, electronics and microprocessor labs and creative technology labs for you to use throughout your degree.
