Mathematics and statistics
Our Maths and Statistics Support Service supports all taught students with maths and statistics.
You can visit us during our drop-in sessions (see below) or request an in-person or online appointment with our friendly advisors.
The service covers a wide range of levels of mathematical and statistical enquiry. For example, we can help if you are:
- preparing for a drug calculations exam in nursing
- writing a mathematical proof
- taking a maths or statistics module
- applying for jobs that require logic or numerical reasoning tests
- doing a dissertation that involves data collection/analysis/presentation.
We will address any gaps in your knowledge by signposting you to useful resources relevant to your course and supporting you in developing learning strategies. We will also discuss specific maths or statistics parts of your courses with you and suggest ways to prepare for your exams. Our main goal is to support you in building your confidence and becoming an independent learner.

See our worked examples and guidance videos across different branches of mathematics and statistics. These videos were generously supported by alumni and friends through the Footsteps Fund.
Module leaders can work with a maths or statistics support advisor to provide tailored support to students, embedded within a specific module. Sessions can be planned as part of the curriculum, or arranged if a specific issue arises on the course.
We also welcome requests from students or course reps, as we have previously created successful sessions suggested by students.
