Trosolwg

Why study French/ Mathematics at Aberystwyth University?

  • There is a wide range of expertise available within our  Department and this is reflected in the module choices we offer. Students could choose modules on linguistics (both modern and historical); dialectical (the study of different forms of French, past and present); literature; the history of ideas and artistic movements; literary representations of Paris, travel literature and current affairs. 
  • All students on this course will spend their third year living independently in a French-speaking country. You could choose to study at University, work as language assistant or other forms of work placements.
  • Mathematics has been taught in Aberystwyth since 1872, so that the department builds on over 140 of teaching excellence.
  • Mathematics as a subject will provide you with the opportunity to uncover a discipline that combines the identification and analysis of shapes and patterns with the ability to confidently analyse data.
  • During the first year, you will receive a comprehensive introduction to French studies and related research skills, in tutorial form. 
  • You will become a student in the Department of Modern Languages  that scored 93% for student satisfaction in the 2017 National Student Survey (NSS, 2017), demonstrating our commitment to provide you with an experience that is memorable and cherished.

Ein Staff

Mae’r holl ddarlithwyr yn yr Adran Mathemateg wedi’u cymhwyso i lefel PhD ac yn weithgar ym myd ymchwil. Mae gan y rhan fwyaf gymhwyster addysgu uwchraddedig ac mae’n rhaid i staff newydd gwblhau’r TUAAU. Mae’r adran hefyd yn cyflogi nifer o diwtoriaid rhan-amser, sydd â phrofiad dysgu eang, a rhai arddangoswyr sy’n cael eu dewis o blith ein myfyrwyr israddedig ac uwchraddedig.

Mae gan bob un o ddarlithwyr yr Adran Ieithoedd Modern gymwysterau hyd at safon PhD ac maent yn gwneud gwaith ymchwil. Rydym hefyd yn cyflogi tiwtoriaid iaith, rhai ohonynt â gradd PhD, a phob un yn addysgwyr profiadol. O bryd i'w gilydd, cyflogwn siaradwyr brodorol o brifysgolion sy'n bartneriaid i ni dramor (lectoriaid), sy'n dod atom â chymeradwyaeth uchel ar sail eu llwyddiant academaidd yn eu prifysgolion eu hunain, ac mae sawl un ohonynt wedi hyfforddi fel addysgwyr.
