Master Course in Mathematics
The MMath course is especially suitable for those interested in research careers in mathematics in universities, industry or research establishments. Progress on the MMath course is dependent on a high level of attainment at the end of Years 1 and 2. Transfer to the MMath course from the BSc course is also possible for students performing sufficiently well. Industrial Placements All our courses are available as either full-time or sandwich courses, with the sandwich course including an extra year spent on professional training in an industrial, commercial or research establishment. The academic content of a full-time and a sandwich course is identical. Satisfactory completion of the professional training in the sandwich course leads to the award of the Diploma in Professional Studies (DPS). A variety of industrial, commercial and research companies have received our students in recent years and good relations have been established between these companies and the Mathematical Sciences Department. Examples include Advantica, Ernst & Young, IBM, Aston Martin Lagonda, ICI, Hitachi and GSK. We are able to assist you to obtain suitable placements but the final responsibility rests with you. Study Abroad If you choose one of our sandwich courses, an alternative to professional training is a year spent studying at a university in another country through a student exchange scheme, leading to the award of the Diploma in International Studies (DIntS). We currently have exchange agreements with universities in: France, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Lithuania, Australia, Canada. Career Prospects Recent graduate destinations include: Ernst & Young, Lloyds Banking Group, Associated British Foods, PricewaterhouseCoopers, British Gas, RGL Forensics, Jaguar Land Rover.
