With an MMath degree, you can enter university as an undergraduate and leave with a valuable postgraduate qualification - ideal if you are looking for high-level jobs in mathematics.

Our MMath degree combines undergraduate and postgraduate study into a single course. You will explore the core disciplines of mathematics before moving on to more-advanced topics in your final year.

Subjects include linear algebra, multivariable calculus, probability and statistics, operational research, number theory, and ordinary and partial differential equations. Individual and group projects will prepare you for further research or a career in the industry. You can also take a weekly placement in a school - an ideal taster for teaching.

This course is accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the UK's chartered professional body for mathematicians. In the 2019 Guardian University Guide, our mathematics courses were ranked in the top 10 in the UK.
