University of Nottingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This course is designed to reflect the breadth of the subject area and expertise at the University of Nottingham. In addition to the core scientific computation modules, 3 streams are suggested in the list of optional modules. Computational science focuses on the formulation and analysis of fundamental algorithms from the perspectives of both mathematics and computer science. Mathematical medicine and biology augments the core material with the development and analysis of models in biomedical mathematics. Industrial mathematics/continuum mechanics draws on the expertise of the industrial and applied mathematics research group in modelling and analysing problems in fluid and solid mechanics. The core modules, taken by all students on the course, provide both theoretical foundations which underpin the design and mathematical analysis of numerical algorithms and the practical skills required to implement them as efficient and robust computer programs. The optional modules have been selected to broaden knowledge of scientific computation and of the mathematical models to which it can be applied.
2.2 (or international equivalent) in mathematics or a closely related subject with substantial mathematical content; some experience with computer programming would be useful. English language requirements: IELTS 6.0 (no less than 5.5 in any element).
IELTS: 6.5 (no less than 6.0 in any)

They organise regular events and even trips to allow students from outside the UK to make the most of their time in the country and to see all that the UK has to offer. There is even help and advice for after studies have finished and students are looking for work. The Students Union are responsible for the organisation of some 190 student clubs and societies along with some 75 sports clubs. There is a student run newspaper as well as a professional sound and lighting company for events in the area. It holds a regular RAG organisation, the largest outside the US, which raises over Â£1 million each year for good causes. There is a Student Volunteer Centre and an international volunteering project as well as working in the larger community.
