Year in Industry

Posted on 16 February 2018

MMath students are now being given the opportunity to apply for a Year in Industry.

As an MMath student, here at the University of York, you can now apply for a Year in Industry.

This year, which slots between the third and fourth year of your study, will give you the opportunity to gain research experience in industry or a research institute relevant to your degree. Your degree title will then become MMath (Hons) Mathematics with a Year in Industry. This hands-on experience of working in an industrial environment or research institute will allow you to develop your skills and put what you have learnt in your degree into practice in the real world. It will also give you a competitive advantage when you graduate.

Obtaining an industrial placement will depend on the grades you achieve during your course and transfer to the programme is subject to satisfactory academic progress. Placements are competitive and applying for one will be like applying for a job. Our placement coordinator will help you find opportunities, provide advice and support with CVs, cover letters and application forms and help you practise interview techniques, but you will be responsible for securing your placement.

You don’t have to make a decision about taking up the Year in Industry option now – you can transfer to the programme in your second year.
