Year 2: Areas studied include algebra, analysis, complex variables, mathematical methods, differential geometry and topology, probability, and calculus of variations. You will usually choose three optional modules from a wide range of topics in pure and applied mathematics and statistics. Up to two modules taught by other Departments in the University may be included. Optional placement/study year: Salaried industrial placement and/or overseas study. Year 3 MMath: Areas studied include a variety of options in pure and applied mathematics and statistics, and a mathematics project. You will usually choose ten optional modules from a wide range of topics in pure and applied mathematics, statistics and mathematical physics. Up to two modules taught by other Departments in the University may be included. Final year MMath: Areas studied include topics chosen from all areas of pure and applied mathematics, together with a compulsory mathematics project. You will usually choose six optional modules from a wide range of topics in pure and applied mathematics and statistics. A full list of indicative modules is available on the course page of our website.
Depending on the nature of the material, some modules are assessed by a mixture of coursework and examination (for example 25% coursework and 75% examination), whilst other modules are assessed by 100% coursework or 100% by examination.
