Course overview

Higher mathematics develops logical reasoning, analytical and problem-solving skills which are essential tools in every branch of science, technology, computing and engineering. It uses a universal language of numbers and symbols, which allows us to communicate ideas concisely and rigorously. A pass in Higher Mathematics can open up many opportunities for learners; it is often an essential pre-requisite for entry to university in many areas.

Course Fees: £333 per subject. Fees will be confirmed when an application has been processed.
