Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the QQI, HEA or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
The programme provides graduates with scientific and analytical skills in mathematics as well as an ability to solve problems found in real-life. The first two years of the programme are designed to provide a sound foundation in mathematics, which will underpin subsequent work, and to introduce students to topics in statistics and computer science which can be developed further in later stages through specialised modules.
A strength of the programme is that the third and fourth years are designed in a modular fashion which allows the student to tailor their studies and provides a choice of topics from courses in pure and applied mathematics, statistics, operations research and financial mathematics. The programme includes a six month placement in year three, during which students gain experience of using their analytical, modelling and problem-solving and computer skills in a working environment. Mathematical Sciences is a broad title that encompasses most areas of mathematics and statistics.
Graduates have high-calibre analytical and problem-solving skills and are therefore extremely flexible and able to apply a broad range of mathematical techniques and rigour to countless applications and industries.
