Student view

Amy
BSc (Hons) Mathematics

“I chose the University of Chichester because of the small community feel; small class sizes advance your learning faster and everyone is friends with everyone! My favourite thing about the campus is the lecturers, they are so friendly and accommodating that you always feel at home. The mathematics course is excellent as well, especially the employability skills that are integrated into each module, as it can sometimes be a minefield to decide what you would like to pursue after graduating. When I leave, I hope to go into software development and data analytics, which has sparked my interest during the statistical methods modules I have completed.”
