Mathematics with Placement Year

The MMath is our flagship course for those thinking of a career as a professional mathematician. A major component of the final year of the MMath course is spent on a research project, providing an opportunity for independent study, guided by a member of academic staff in their area of expertise. Your study will include core mathematics, pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and probability and statistics. You can specialise later in your course, and may have the option to switch between our degrees. You'll have the chance to study scientific programming and simulation, and practical and applied statistics. For applied mathematics and probability and statistics, you don't need to have prior knowledge of the subject. You'll have plenty of opportunities to focus on your career and skills development too. Your placement year is a great way to get experience of real-world mathematics and improve your CV. Students are often offered graduate jobs at the end. Employers range from the Department of Work and Pensions to Goldman Sachs.
