Course summary

This MSci offers an additional year of study on top of the Mathematics and Physics BSc, during which students can specialise further by taking more advanced modules and completing a major project.

Degree benefits

  • The MSci programme provides both a broad-based training and in-depth study, particularly suitable if you wish to pursue research in mathematics or physics.

  • Highly regarded (16th in Times Higher Education World University Rankings by Subject, 2021) UCL Mathematics is home to world-leading researchers in a wide range of fields, especially geometry, spectral theory, number theory, fluid dynamics and mathematical modelling.

  • Three of the six British winners of the Fields medal (the mathematician's equivalent of the Nobel Prize) have associations with the department.

  • UCL Physics & Astronomy and UCL Mathematics both rank in the top 20 in THE World University Rankings by Subject 2020.

Your learning

Teaching is mainly carried out through lectures and small-group tutorials. Problem classes allow you to exercise the skills you have learned. In addition, an 'office hours' system for each programme allows you to meet with tutors on a one-to-one basis to review parts of the degree that you find interesting or need clarifying. A Student Mentor scheme runs in the department offering support and advice to first-years.

Assessment

Most modules are assessed by two-hour written modules in the third term, with a small element (10%) of coursework assessment.

Careers

We aim to develop your skills in mathematical reasoning, problem-solving and accurate mathematical manipulation. You will also learn to handle abstract concepts and to think critically, argue logically and express yourself clearly.

A mathematics degree is highly valued by employers due to the skills in logical thinking, analysis, problem-solving and, of course, numeracy, that it develops.

Graduates have gone forward to use their mathematical skills in careers in the City of London, such as forecasting, risk analysis and trading; in financial services, such as accountancy, banking and insurance; and in scientific research, information technology and industry.
