HEI Curriculum Research

More Maths Grads was a three year project funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England to develop, trial and evaluate means of increasing the number of students studying mathematics and encouraging participation from groups of learners who have not traditionally been well represented in higher education.

Part of the mission of the More Maths Grads project was to re-evaluate the curriculum in mathematics in higher education. Sheffield Hallam University undertook a national study to assess what universities could cover and to increase the scope of mathematics courses to allow real choice for a wide range of students.

The study also looked at the learning, teaching and assessment methods used by university mathematical science departments to see if students can be better supported in their studies.

Courses were also evaluated to see if they give graduates the generic skills that employers seek. Below are some of the pdfs of this work.
