Course summary

Overview

Our Mathematics MSc is a wide-ranging course mainly drawing on modules from Pure Mathematics with additional options to study elements of applied mathematics such as Theoretical Physics, Complex Systems and Financial Mathematics. The course is suitable for graduates who wish to pursue an advanced mathematical study pathway with the intention of studying at a PhD level in a mathematical discipline later on.

Course detail

Our Mathematics MSc course offers you the choice to study either full or part-time, taking a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits, including 60 credits that will come from a research project and dissertation. You will explore mathematical areas including Algebra, Analysis, Geometry and Number Theory, and there are opportunities to explore a broad range of additional modules, allowing you the freedom to develop a study pathway that reflects your interests – see the course structure for full details of available modules. King’s is also a member of the University of London and by arrangement, you can enrol in optional modules at other institutions within the University of London, which includes University College London, Queen Mary and others.

Teaching and assessment

We use lectures and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the course. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15 credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module: lectures, tutorials, independent study, coursework and preparation for examinations. During your work on the MSc Project you will have regular meetings with your project supervisor, but you are expected to spend the majority of your time in self-study to complete the project. The primary method of assessment for this degree is written examination. You may also be assessed by essays, practical examination, oral presentation, reports, class tests and projects. The nature of assessment varies by module.

Career prospects

Our graduates have since found employment with Barclays Bank, Kinetic Partners, Lloyds Banking Group and Sapient.
