Mathematics and Statistics (3 Years) [BSc]

Year 3 Programme Structure

The 3rd year of this programme consists of 120 credits of optional course units. 100 credits must be taken from Level 3 (or Level 4 with permission) course unit options, including at least 80 credits of level 3 (or level 4 with permission) MATH options*. Up to 40 credits can be taken from the approved non MATH course units listed below and a maximum of 20 credits of Level 2 course units may be taken. 

*Note: The choice of MATH optional course units MUST include at least 60 credits of Level 3 (or Level 4 with permission) Probability and Statistics course units. (These consist of either course units that begin with the codes MATH37, MATH38, MATH47, MATH48, or a project in Probability or Statistics.)

Appropropriate outside course units for the finance pathway are: BMAN21020 Financial Reporting and Accountability, BMAN21040 Intermediate Management Accounting, BMAN23000(B) Foundations of Finance. Students taking one of these BMAN course units need only take 30 credits of the optional 40 credits in Probability and Statistics.  BMAN course descriptions are available from My Manchester student portal and please note that there are a number of pre-requisites and required performance.

The list below are course units available to year 3 students on this programme.  The level listed refers to the year, and therefore course units that start with a '2' for example BMAN21040 is a level 2 course unit module.
