AAB including Mathematics and Further Mathematics (full entry requirements)
4 years full-time
We designed our four-year MMath degree programme for those who want to follow careers in industry or research.
You'll learn about more topics in depth, and even approach the cutting edge of research in your final year of study.
The department is great with inspiring lectures, the University has a great vibe and is in an amazing city. The college system is also fantastic as you feel like you can contact your college committee about anything.Stephanie, Mathematics (MMath)
While working toward your MMath degree, you'll have the chance to specialise in one or more pathways:
The first two years of the BSc and MMath single-subject programmes are identical. This means it's possible, subject to satisfactory academic progress, to switch between the two.
The first-year modules will give you a firm foundation across all areas of mathematics. They'll also provide a platform for specialisation later in the degree.
In addition to the above you will also need to complete our online Academic Integrity module. This covers some of the essential skills and knowledge which will help you to study independently and produce work of a high academic standard which is vital for success at York.
This module will:
You'll take four required modules:
Students choose from a range of modules which lead on from the modules chosen in second year. All students take the MMath Group Project.
The main focus of your final year is your individual project, which makes up one third of your final year.
Accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) for the purpose of meeting in full the educational requirement for chartered status.
Lectures, seminars and problem classes are the main mode of teaching. Some modules have practical computer classes. All modules are supported by extensive material provided online, including discussion forums.
In your first year small group tutorials of 8-10 discuss core mathematical ideas. They also develop the skills you'll need in employment such as communication and group work. Your development will continue with programming skills and an individual project in the second year followed by a larger project in the final year.
Small fortnightly seminars and larger fortnightly problem classes support all lecture courses through the degree; a regular pattern of work that will keep your study on track. As you specialise in the third year your lectures are usually smaller and more interactive.
Your assessments will mainly be examinations and regular homework. In your third year, you'll do a group project, assessed by written report and a poster presentation. In your fourth year, you'll do a final project that combines a final report, presentation, and short written assignments.
Your MMath degree will be in high demand for advanced careers that rely on logic and problem solving.
Six months after graduation around 90 per cent of University of York Maths graduates are employed or in further study.
All applications must be made through UCAS. Accepted applicants will be invited to visit the Department between November and April. That's when you can meet our current students and staff, and have a one-to-one conversation with a member of academic staff.
One of the following:
The Department accepts all A level subjects, except for Modern Foreign Languages taken by native speakers.
We will offer you an interview if you present with a strong school performance and application form. Although the interview is not part of your offer and you do not need to attend, if you do, your offer could be reduced by one A Level grade or equivalent.
