Mathematics and Statistics (4 Years) [MMath]

Year 4 Programme Structure

The 4th year of this programme consists of 30 credits of compulsory Project work (listed below as a mandatory requirement) and must include 90 credits of Level 4 MATH course units which can be taken with Level 3 MATH course units over the final two years*, totalling 240 credits. Up to 20 credits can be taken from the approved level 3 non MATH course units with permission.

*Note: 

  • The choice of optional course units over the final two years MUST include at least 80 credits of Level 3 or 4 Probability and Statistics course units (these course units begin with the codes MATH37, MATH38, MATH47 and MATH48).
  • Students should consider taking up to two Level 4 MATH course unit options in the Third Year as this will increase choice and give flexibility in the Fourth Year.
  • The Fourth Year project MUST be in Probability or Statistics.
  • Students who take MATH37001 cannot take MATH47201, and vice versa.
