HEFCE is providing just over £800,000 to support sigma, a network to promote mathematics and statistics support across the country.

Students across a wide range of subjects need skills in mathematics and statistics. For some subjects these skills and career plans are more central than others.

The sigma project has:

  • supported the development of maths ‘drop-in’ centres
  • developed resources for use across the network
  • provided staff training
  • provided a platform through six regional hubs for the sharing of experience and practice.

House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology

In February 2014 we submitted evidence to the House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology, which is conducting a short inquiry on International STEM students.

Our submission, and the data that supports it, can be found below.
