Course summary

TEF Gold

Imperial College London has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

As well as your main Imperial degree, you will also receive the award of the Associateship of the Royal College of Science (ARCS) on completion of this course. Mathematics at Imperial aims to present a wide range of mathematical ideas in a way that develops your critical and intellectual abilities. The Department is home to several Fellows of the Royal Society and international prize winners, and our degrees are built around our research expertise in four core areas:

  • Pure Mathematics
  • Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics
  • Mathematical Finance
  • Statistics
You will cover both topics that are a direct continuation of those at A-level and those that introduce you to new ways of thinking, such as the logical structure of arguments, the proper definition of mathematical objects, the design of sophisticated mathematical models, and the legitimacy of computations. All of our courses follow the same core curriculum for the first two years, covering key areas of mathematics such as algebra, differential equations, and probability and statistics. In your third year you can choose from over 50 optional modules, many of which are linked to our cutting edge research, allowing you to specialise in the areas that interest you most. The MSci Mathematics course builds on the BSc with an integrated year taught at Master's level, in which you complete advanced modules and a research project. The high level of shared content in the first two years means it is usually possible to transfer between any of our maths courses during this time (within stated restrictions) however, transfer onto the Year Abroad course must normally be done in your first year. If you are an international student, transferring to a different course could have an impact on your Tier 4 visa, but our International Student Support Team are here to help advise and support you. Successful candidates will receive one offer for one course from the Department, so you should apply to just one. There is no advantage in applying to multiple courses within Mathematics.

Admission tests

Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT)

All candidates (excluding those who wish to study Mathematics and Computer Science) who apply prior to 15 October are required to sit the Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT). The MAT allows us to have a common measure with which to benchmark all our applicants, regardless of which qualifications they are taking as well or those they already have. The MAT is a paper-based, subject-specific admissions test which lasts 2.5 hours and takes place in early November. For more information about the test, visit the Admission Testing Service's website. You must register for the test before taking it.
