I am a U.K. Student studying for a maths BSc. Would it be possible to finish the BSc and then study a masters in the US?

It is definitely possible, but I'm not so sure straight after you've studied for your BSc, most graduate programmes ask for a certain amount of years of Full-time work experience before even thinking about going through the admissions process.

An *example* here for entry requirements for a graduate programme in NYU you would need to have a minimum of 5 years work experience

but another *example* is the University of Arizona, where I've noticed some of their graduate programmes don't specifically ask for a certain amount of years of work experience but you would need to submit a CV/Resume within the application. I just think it ultimately depends on what you're planning to study.

Im sorry but this in enquiry appears to be specifically about Mathematics, no university in their right mind would ask a maths student to go do some work before they go back into study as they need constant practice. Of course business students may need work experience given they are studying about business after all however in this case it will certainly not be true.

In your case, the biggest issue will be finding a university that either doesn't have an integrated masters into their Doctoral Programme or if so, one that allows you leave near the beginning after you have achieved a Masters on route to your Doctorate.
