UCC Mathematics Enrichment Programme

18 Dec 2019

UCC Mathematics Enrichment re-commenced on 23 November and is now in its 31st year. The programme has three different levels - Junior Beginning, Intermediate and Senior Advanced.  Students who attend these programmes come from post-primary education to work in a relaxed, playful environment where creative thinking and problem-solving skills are emphasised to deepen students’ understanding and interest in mathematics.

Over the years, past students of the Mathematical Enrichment programmes have gone on to study STEM undergraduate programmes in UCC, Oxford, Cambridge, ICL, TCD, Maynooth, CIT and a long list of other universities. Students from the programme have also achieved high results in various mathematical olympiads such as the International Mathematical Olympiad and the European Girls Mathematical Olympiad.

The Mathematical Enrichment programmes are co-ordinated by Dr Anca Mustata, with administrative and academic support from individuals throughout the department, from undergraduate mathematical sciences students to professors and lecturers. This year’s programme runs until the 30 May 2020.
