Course description

Our MMath Mathematics course provides excellent training for a professional mathematical career or postgraduate research career. The first and second years of the four-year course are common with the BSc Mathematics programme, while the final two years allow you to study a broad range of advanced mathematical topics in depth. In the final two years, specialist MMath modules are combined with BSc modules in a variety of mathematical areas such as algebra, analysis, dynamics, mechanics, topology and statistics. In the final year, you will undertake a major project on your chosen topic, giving you the opportunity to demonstrate and extend your skills in a selected area.

Modules

Year 1: Course incorporates themes from pure and applied mathematics, mathematical modelling, statistics and computing; transfer is possible to either mathematics and computing science or mathematics with statistics. Year 2: 2/3 of the course comprises core modules such as mathematical methods, algebra and numerical and computational methods; the remainder is chosen from options in mathematics, computing and statistics. Years 3 and 4: Topics from a broad range of advanced mathematical subjects to be studied in depth; year 3 combines specialist MMath modules with BSc modules: algebra; analysis; symmetry methods; fluid flow; geometry; dynamics; mathematical economics; probability; final year: major project; further specialist modules.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The UK still doesn’t have as many maths teachers as we’d like, so anyone wanting to take maths and then go into teaching will be welcome. In fact, there’s felt to be a general lack of maths skills in the population at large, so this is one subject where there's demand for graduate skills. With all that training in handling figures, it's hardly surprising that a lot of maths graduates go into well-paid jobs in the IT or finance industries, and last year, a maths graduate in London could expect a very respectable average starting salary of £27k. But for research jobs, you'll want a doctorate – and a really good maths doctorate will get you all sorts of interest from academia and finance – and might secure salaries to match.
