Comments about MMAth Mathematics with French Language  At the institution  Sheffield  South Yorkshire

Objectives
The Mathematics course is taught by the three departments of Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and probability and Statistics. Most Single Honours students start by studying Core Mathematics and all three of these subjects and may specialise in one or two of them later on. Dual Honours students take Core Mathematics and some of the same modules as the Single Honours students, and spend roughly half of their time in the School of Mathematics and Statistics. You will spend your third year abroad. There is scope for changing degree course within the first few weeks of arriving in Sheffield, and sometimes at the end of the first or second year. The courses in Applied Mathematics and Probability and statistics do not assume prior knowledge of these subjects. Your third year is spent in a French university, learning Mathematics in the French language. During your first, second and fourth years, spent at Sheffield, some Mathematics courses are replaced by courses in French language at an appropriate level. Candidates are expected to have a good A Level in French to enter this course.
