Maths Summer School

Monday 20th August to Friday 31st August 2018

The Maths Summer School (MSS) delivered by the School of Engineering and Built Environment (SEBE) at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has been designed for students who, as part of their conditional offer must complete additional maths modules.  For those students full attendance is compulsory.

Other SEBE applicants with a conditional or unconditional offer, who would like to update their maths knowledge and study skills, may also attend.

The Maths Summer School is delivered on a full-time basis over two weeks, 10am-4pm each weekday with one hour for lunch and there is no cost for attending.  Students should report to M323 in the George Moore Building at 9.30am on Monday 20th August when an overview of the structure and content of the MSS will be presented. 

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.

All students who are attending as part of their conditional offer must complete a compulsory written exam on the final day.  

Students will be issued with lecture notes on the opening day, 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 contact students by email in the run up to the Maths Summer School with any additional information.
