UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

This three'year programme offers a comprehensive education in mathematics along with the opportunity to achieve proficiency in two or more modern languages from a choice of Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Spanish and possibly others. Graduates are equipped for careers that may take them to Europe or further afield.

Course Modules

Years 1 and 2: 6 courses are taken each year giving grounding in pure mathematics and mathematical methods, following the same courses as the single'subject mathematics students. In place of applied mathematics, students take 2 courses in European languages each year. Year 3: Range of options in both mathematics and language(s). Course does not currently involve a year's study in continental Europe; the Department is investigating this possibility for all students who are proficient in the appropriate language. 4 main European languages (French, German, Italian, Spanish) are available for study and all levels of competence can be catered for; it is sometimes possible to provide study in another European language and it is also possible to study a course leading to a qualification in TEFL.
