A Level Maths

Course outline

If you have a talent for maths and enjoy solving challenging problems, this could be the course for you. It’s a subject where you’ll gain some great transferable skills such as problem solving, logic and analysing situations, which are useful for many university courses and careers.

Having a traditional subject such as Maths on your CV can boost your job prospects and there is evidence that people who study Maths earn more money than those who don’t.

You will study this course alongside 2 or 3 other A Levels and you will be able to select your chosen subjects when you apply online.

Many of our students take this subject alongside business studies, economics, psychology, sociology and geography. As part of the course you will study pure mathematics, building on the work you did at GCSE level and extending your range of mathematical skills and techniques to solve more difficult problems. Topics include pure maths and statistics.

Aged 24 or over?

If you don't already hold a Level 3 qualification (equivalent to at least two A Levels, or a Level 3 vocational qualification), you can now study A Level Maths over 2 years fully funded!

The Government’s new Lifetime Skills Guarantee programme has created new opportunities for adults, aged 24 and over, to access fully funded full-time learning.

For more information, view our Funded Courses for Over 24s page.

If you are aged 16-18 or 19-23 without having achieved a Level 3 qualification, you will also be eligible for full funding.
