Studying Mathematical Studies alongside your vocational course allows you to gain up to 20 extra UCAS points, building on your existing mathematical knowledge. There has been a tremendous amount of coverage in the media about the UK’s gap in basic maths skills - only 20 per cent of students study maths beyond GCSE in the UK - the lowest rate in leading developed countries in the world; in Japan, this figure is 85%. This course helps to address that, by offering you an additional qualification, which can help you with your vocational course, particularly in subjects such as science, business studies, economics, accountancy and ICT.
Over 60% of students at CONEL received A and B grades, and 100% of our students achieve their qualification.
You will need:
All applicants must have an initial assessment and interview to confirm that the course is suitable for them.

If you will be aged 19 or older on 31 August in the year you begin your course, and have been resident in the UK/EU/EEA for the past 3 years, you may be eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover the cost of your course. Some courses will have other costs associated, such as for materials and trips.
