Course details
Course UCAS code: G103
Qualification type:
  • MMath, Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
The MMath is a four-year degree in Mathematics. It offers a good basis for a wide range of employment, including a career as a professional mathematician or statistician in industry or if you wish to go on to do research in the higher education sector. You will spend one-third of your final year on project work, and consequently be able to study in depth a topic in which you are particularly interested. Specific module availability may change slightly but currently, the structure is as follows. **Year 1** The first year consists of 100 compulsory Mathematics credits: Analysis (20) / Linear Algebra (20) / Calculus (20) / Programming (10) / Dynamics (10) / Probability (10) / Statistics (10) Together with a further 20 credits which can be chosen from: Discrete Mathematics (20) / Any other available Sciences, Arts and Social Sciences modules (subject to prerequisites and timetabling). In the Mathematics modules, topics that may be familiar from A level (or equivalent) are expanded and developed to help you adjust to university life, provide a sound foundation for your Mathematics degree and enable you to make informed choices when picking modules from second year onwards. **Year 2** In the second year, you will choose six Maths modules. You will take two compulsory modules: Complex Analysis / Analysis in Many Variables. Together with modules from a range which includes: Numerical Analysis / Statistical Concepts / Mathematical Physics / Algebra / A combination of two shorter courses on a wide range of mathematical topics – Elementary Number Theory, Probability, Mathematical Modelling, Geometric Topology, Monte Carlo, Actuarial Mathematics, and Special Relativity and Electromagnetism. At this stage, you can begin to specialise in areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and probability although you can also maintain a wide range of options for the third year. **Year 3** In the third year you choose six from a wide choice of around 20 modules covering a variety of topics in areas such as algebra, geometry, topology, applied mathematics, mathematical physics, statistics and probability, together with options including Mathematical Finance, Mathematical Biology and Mathematics Teaching. Many of these topics are closely linked to and informed by current research. **Year 4** In the fourth year, you take a double module project, giving you the opportunity to investigate a mathematical topic of interest. You will produce a written report and poster and give a short presentation. This develops your research and communication skills which are very important for future employment or postgraduate studies. You also choose four taught modules from a wide variety of topics as in Year 3. Some but not all of these modules follow on from options in Year 3, allowing you to both advance and broaden your mathematical expertise approaching research level. **Study Abroad** We are a part of the SOCRATES/ERASMUS programme which encourages students to study for part of their course in a university of another EU country. We have links with universities where courses are taught in French, German, Italian and Spanish – currently in Berlin, Bochum, Bologna, Chambery, Duisberg, Fribourg, Granada, Mons and Strasbourg. Admission to any of our partner universities via the Erasmus programme is contingent upon admittance by the host institution, availability of places, suitable modules in the corresponding academic year, and renewal of requisite exchange agreem For more information on this course, please see our website.
