Maths Advice

Our team offers help with mathematics to both undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate taught (PGT) students from across the university. We work with staff to provide specially designed sessions within courses, but we also offer a wide range of services directly to students such as: 

  • Confidential one-to-one appointments with one of our advisers. These are available to all undergraduate and PGT students, but please note that Honours and PGT Mathematics students should instead seek help directly from their School. See below to book. 
  • A variety of online resources on our Maths and Stats Moodle, both general and subject specific – just have a browse! 
  • Graduate Numeracy Moodle where you can find practice questions, lessons and videos to help with employers’ numeracy tests. 
  • General drop-ins, courses and workshops which are open to all students. See below for more details as they become available. 

For help with statistics, please see the Statistics Advice webpage instead. If you still can't find what you're looking for, or for any other enquiries, please email our Maths Adviser at
