What undergraduate degrees can Scholars study?

Please see below a list of eligible degrees and other eligibility criteria for undergraduate degrees:

  • Dual honours degrees are eligible only if the course contains at least 50% mathematics or physics content.

  • Education degrees, such as Mathematics with Education, are ineligible because the Future Teaching Scholars programme is in itself a new route into teaching. The elements offered in education degrees overlap with learning content and teaching experiences provided throughout the Future Teaching Scholars programme. Please note, QTS is included in the structure of the programme.
  • Finance degrees cannot be supported, unless they are taken as a dual honours with Mathematics, and must contain at least 50% maths modules.
