We have an excellent relationship with the Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP) and
with Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI), the educational charity which manages the FMSP.

an FMSP Area Coordinator and he is based in our Department of Mathematical Sciences. The University is proud to be able to contribute to the excellent
