    Course Summary

    A joint honours BSc degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Lincoln is designed to give you a deep familiarity with the digital devices which are more and more defining our world and society, but also with the pure mathematical concepts that make digital logic possible. You’ll learn not only advanced applied and theoretical mathematics but also the analytical, problem solving and technical skills you’ll need to apply mathematical concepts in the field of computer science.

    Your computer science skills will of course be in high demand in a wide range of industries and sectors, and your mathematical skills will be transferrable to almost any role with a scientific, engineering or numerical aspect.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Entry & Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-Nationals

    This BSc program typically requires applicants to have achieved 3 A levels at BBC or better, which should include an A in Maths. A range of other, equivalent qualifications are also accepted.

     

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non EU) students

    International students must be fluent in written and spoken English. This can be demonstrated with an IELTS score of at least 6.0, with no segment scoring less than 5.5. Again, a number of equivalent qualifications are accepted.
