Maths Summer School

Monday 21st August to Friday 1st September 2017

The School of Engineering and Built Environment (SEBE) at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) runs a Mathematics Summer School (MSS) designed for students who have received a conditional offer to join their chosen course in engineering, computing, networking or the built environment. For those students full attendance at the MSS is compulsory.

Students with an unconditional offer, who would like to update their mathematical knowledge and study skills, may also attend. There is no cost for attending the MSS.

The MSS is delivered on a full-time basis for two weeks. It starts each weekday morning at 10am and ends at 4pm with one hour for lunch.

Each teaching session will consist of a mixture of lectures and tutorials. During lectures students will be expected to take notes and at tutorials tackle additional exercises with staff on hand to answer questions.

A compulsory written exam will be completed on the final day by all students who have to attend MSS as part of their conditional offer.  

Students will be issued with lecture notes on the opening day and copies are provided below in pdf format. Please bring the notes with you to all the sessions.

Throughout the summer period our admissions team will invite all eligible students to the Maths Summer School as and when HN results are officially confirmed. Admissions at GCU obtain official confirmation of results from colleges or the SQA. An email to register will be sent to students once their results are confirmed.  The School of Engineering and Built Environment will then be in touch with students by email in the run up to the Maths Summer School with any additional information.

For more information on the MSS, please contact collegeconnect@gcu.ac.uk.
