Bridging to University Series 23/24

FMSP Wales is running an exciting series of pre-recorded presentations which will enable year 13 students to bridge towards studying STEM subjects at University. There is rarely time during the school teaching framework to see how Differential Equations can be used to model epidemics; or to investigate how Complex Numbers generate the amazing Mandelbrot set.  The present course is an opportunity to link up with Higher Education to benefit from their deep knowledge of the subject and their intimate familiarity with university-level mathematics. The programme is recommended to any students considering taking a maths-rich degree in September 2024. 

Most talks are prepared by mathematics academics and a few talks consider other stem disciplines where mathematics plays an important role, such as physics, computer science or engineering. Each session will be pre-recorded and approximately 30 minutes long and each made available for a limited time. There will be an opportunity for students to ask the lecturer questions about the presentation by email, and the lecturer will release a video response to selected questions, in the second week.  

We ask teachers to collate the details of the interested students and register here:

The first video will be released on the 29th of November and then every week until Easter 2024.

These sessions are free to all pupils in a State Funded Schools/colleges in Wales
