If you enjoyed studying Mathematics at school and would like to study the subject in more depth, you should consider G100 or G101. G100 provides an excellent foundation for a wide range of careers. Students who opt for the four-year MMath programme are well placed to embark on a PhD or to take a research post in industry after graduation.

In the first two years of these programmes, you will study a range of topics covering important areas of both Pure and Applied Mathematics – no assumptions are made about whether or not you have previously studied Mechanics or Statistics, or have previous experience of the use of computers.

Year One modules introduce fundamental ideas and also reinforce A level work. Subsequently, you can either specialise or continue to study abroad range of topics. For both of these programmes, you will take at least two modules of Pure Mathematics and two of Applied Mathematics in Year Two.

Programme structure

Programme Year One

You will take the modules:

(a) Calculus I
(b) Introduction to Linear Algebra
© Calculus II
(d) Numbers and Sets
(e) Dynamic Modelling
(f) Introduction to Statistics

You have the choice of:

(g) Mathematical IT Skills


(i) Introduction to Programming in Java


(h) Numbers, Groups and Codes


(j) Introduction to Databases

You will have to take (i) and (j) if you want to take Computer Science modules in your second year.

Tutorials for foundation modules (a b and c) are in small groups.

Programme Year Two

In the second and subsequent years of study, there is a wide range of modules. For the programme that you choose there may be no compulsory modules (although you may have to choose a few from a subset such as Pure Mathematics). If you make a different choice, you will find that one or more modules have to be taken. Each year you will choose the equivalent of eight modules. Please note that we regularly review our teaching so the choice of modules may change.
