Has anyone been in a similar situation, when course requires credits of specific subject?
I found that all Computer Science related MSc programmes require at least 15 ECTS (=30 UK credits) credits in mathematics. While some require 30 ECTS: http://www.uu.se/en/admissions/maste...M&lasar=14/15#
I've checked others and all seem to require more math than they teach us (comp sci students) here in UK.
I am studying BSc Computer Science at City University London and here we have a module Mathematics for Computing (15 credits) and no more math available. I was looking at BSc Computer Science course contents of other UK universities and I haven't found a uni with enough math for Swedish masters. For example KCL does not have a single math module:
If we use deductive reasoning while considering information I gathered so far as premises conclusion would be:
"Majority of BSc Computer Science graduates from UK cannot study MSc Computer Science in Sweden." (due to lack of math)
What are your thoughts?

It probably depends on what they consider maths modules. I did my BSc in mainland Europe in a university that is known for its fundamental BSc CS. We have taken 24 ECTS of strictly mathematical modules (calculus, linear algebra, logic, discrete math) and 30 ECTS of strongly fundamental modules (the foundations of CS sequence, concurrency theory, program correctness, complexity theory).
I think that these requirements are not always strict. I had an unconditional offer from ETH Zurich despite not having studied probability theory. Since my background was much stronger in other subfields, I was able to compensate for that. You can check their requirements here:
