Course summary

Our Mathematics MSci will give you the basis you need in advanced mathematics. In your fourth year you will conduct a research project, pursuing your own academic interests and acquiring the skill of independent academic research. This course leads to careers where mathematics is used technically, including industrial and academic research and finance, but will also suit those who wish to deepen their undergraduate studies. You may have the opportunity to transfer to the five year Mathematics with a Year Abroad MSci programme where you will spend your third or fourth year abroad at a partner institution before returning to King’s to complete your studies.

Key benefits

  • Top 10 in the UK for Mathematics (QS World Rankings by subject 2020).
  • Research lies at the heart of our department - 87% of research classed as world-leading or internationally excellent (REF 2014).
  • You can choose from a wide range of modules, taught by renowned experts.
  • You'll become highly employable - our graduates have entered careers in banking, consultancy, accountancy, management and more.

Our MSci course contains modules in all branches of mathematics. In pure mathematics, we offer modules in algebra, analysis, geometry and number theory. In applied mathematics, we offer modules in complex systems, probability, statistics and theoretical physics. During your first year you will follow a set course of modules, but in your later years you will have more freedom to choose modules and tailor your degree to suit your interests. The MSci covers more ground than the BSc course, allowing you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, and, in addition, requires you to undertake a substantial project in your fourth year to develop the skills you will need for further research or the world of work.


A degree in mathematics is one of the most flexible qualifications you can obtain, and as a result our graduates are among the best paid and the least likely to be unemployed. Many mathematics graduates become statisticians, actuaries, scientists, accountants, and so on. More and more often they are also going into careers in life sciences or the City. There is also considerable demand for graduates of mathematics in the teaching profession.
