The School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Lincoln will be based in purpose-built facilities in the University’s new Isaac Newton Building, and offers a variety of courses across both disciplines.
Our full Mathematics degrees aim to provide a fundamental education in mathematics, including pure and applied mathematics.The subject aims to provide a thorough grounding in analytical and numerical methods, practical scientific skills and research methods.
Our full Physics degree combines fundamental and applied physics with rigorous mathematics and computational training. It also aims to develop broad problem-solving skills and includes a substantial research component. Our foundation year programmes provide an alternative entry route onto our full degree programmes.

Students on all foundation programmes study a combination of core and subject specific modules during the first year as part of an integrated degree programme. The combination of modules studied is tailored to the needs of the full degree programme that students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year.
Students study two core modules at the start of the programme, which aim to build a foundation in mathematics and introduce key study skills required for further study. Students also study two further modules which introduce fundamental aspects of specific areas of science relevant to the chosen foundation year programme. Students will also study an integrative module which is aligned to the full degree programme which students' wish to progress onto upon successful completion of the Science Foundation Year.
Following successful completion of the Science Foundation Year, students will then progress onto the first undergraduate year of their chosen degree programme. This means students will study for a total of four years for a standard degree, or five years if they take an integrated Master’s degree. Students’ final awards upon graduating will reflect the full course title, for example “BSc Physics with Science Foundation Year”. Course specific information on the full degree programmes within the School of Mathematics and Physics can be found on our course pages.
The way students will be assessed on the foundation year will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a lab report or essay, written exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples.
Written exams: 50%
All students will study two core modules:
Students will also study:
Students also complete the integrative module:
Following successful completion of the foundation year, students will then progress onto their chosen full degree programme. Full module details can be found below:
This core module is compulsory for all Science Foundation Year students. The module aims to develop the relevant problem solving and mathematical skills to provide a solid mathematical base to support future studies. The module will be assessed via regular submission of coursework questions (50%) and an end of year examination (50%).
This core module is compulsory for all Science Foundation Year students. During the communication elements of the module, you will have the opportunity to develop your learning, group work and presentation skills, together with both written and verbal communication skills and ICT skills. The module will be assessed via submission of three pieces of coursework.
This module is compulsory for students progressing into Mathematics and Physics degrees, and is an optional choice for those on Engineering or Chemistry degree paths. The aim of this module is to recap and consolidate your knowledge on key areas of A-Level Physics, whilst also developing key processing and mathematical skills. Work within laboratory sessions also aim to increase your confidence in both working practically and analysing practical results. The module will be assessed via coursework (50%) and an end of year examination (50%).

The module will be assessed via regular submission of coursework questions (50%) and an end of year examination (50%).
The module will provide an opportunity for students to advance their understanding of the main mathematical and physical methods needed to prepare them for their chosen degree programme within an academically challenging yet supportive environment. The module aims to provide learning opportunities in a set of key areas of mathematics and physics in preparation for BSc level study. Additionally, it will provide opportunities to develop computer skills applied to mathematics and physics questions and enhance problem solving skills.
Throughout this programme, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.
