TEF Gold - Teaching Excellence Framework

This programme allows students to 'Upgrade to Success'. In other words, you can upgrade a non-standard qualification, or a third class honours degree, to a level equivalent to that of a first or second class honours degree.

The qualification that you gain from this course is a marketable addition to your CV. The skills gained through this course are highly transferable; maths is the backbone of many disciplines along a broad range of categories such as sciences and economics.

The material that is currently in the Mathematics programme covers a wide range of topics including mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, magneto hydrodynamics and numerical analysis and scientific computing as well as core subjects such as analysis and mathematical methods.

Please note that this course does not provide a direct entry route to Masters or PhD programmes at Dundee: applications for these programmes are considered separately.

The Mathematics division at the University of Dundee boasts an enviable staff to student ratio. Teachers are able to get to know students on a personal level, enhancing the support they can provide and improving our students' learning experience.

We also provide 24/7 access to computers dedicated to students studying mathematics to further support you throughout your studies.

Who should study this course?

A candidate for the Diploma must have obtained a university degree or equivalent qualification and have a suitable background in mathematics, normally equivalent to one or two year's study at university.

This is for students who have a grounding in pre-Honours mathematics (but not necessarily obtained as part of a Mathematics degree course), and wish to study a selection of modern and challenging topics in Applied Mathematics at University Honours level.

Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)

The University of Dundee has been given a Gold award – the highest possible rating – in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
