Course Introduction

This programme is designed to be as flexible as possible; you will have a choice of modules taken from our BSc Mathematics. You will meet with the programme director before the start of the academic year and decide on a suitable programme of study, based on your interests and experience.

Course Modules

Modules on the BSc Mathematics are at Level 4, 5 or 6. For the graduate certificate, you must take 2 modules at Level 6. Level 6 modules differ each year. The following is an indicative list. Level 6 modules available include: Computational mathematics; number theory and algebra; number theory and geometry; problems in mathematics; real and complex variable; students who perform well on the graduate certificate would be able to proceed to MSc mathematics.

Course Additional Entry

First degree in a quantitative discipline, such as science or economics, or a joint degree containing some mathematics. In exceptional circumstances, candidates without a first degree in a quantitative discipline may be admitted, provided they have equivalent'level qualifications or professional experience that convinces the admissions team that the programme is suitable for them. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub'tests.
