Mathematical support

Student group work

Mathematics and statistics are relevant to many discipline areas; however, many students experience difficulties with these subjects as they begin their university studies. The Centre will be a place where students from all disciplines can receive additional help with the mathematical and statistical content of their courses. This is in addition to the support you will receive as part of your undergraduate programme.

Maths centre drop-in support

You can drop-in to the Mathematics Support Centre and receive one-to-one help with any mathematics or statistics based problem; there is no need to make an appointment. The support centre provides a relaxed and friendly environment where experienced mathematicians will help you with any mathematical difficulties you may have, and help develop your mathematical confidence.
