We welcome applications from people who intend to take (or have taken) a gap year. Our experience is that students often benefit from the social maturity and broader perspectives a year out can bring.
After year-two, students can take a year’s placement to experience mathematics in action.
The job must be deemed to provide learning experiences related to the degree course. A satisfactory placement leads to the award of a ‘BSc with Intercalated Year’ (and often to a potential job offer after graduation). The maths department is unfortunately unable to help with finding such placements.
At the end of year-one, we encourage mathematically successful students with appropriate language skills to consider spending year-three at a European partner university under the EU Erasmus exchange programme.
It is a challenging but very worthwhile experience. Your degree title will include 'with Intercalated Year' or 'MMath with Study Abroad'.
We will always help students to find suitable accommodation. In particular, students returning from a year abroad are given high priority for campus accommodation.
You can enter STEP into the 'Not yet completed' subsection of the 'Qualifications' section of the UCAS form.
It is not a problem if you don't know which paper you will sit, just enter STEP. However, we receive all STEP marks automatically for all applicants who have an offer from Warwick.
When registering to take MAT or TMUA you will be asked to make a list of those universities to which you want the marks to be sent. Please list Warwick as one of these.
The following degrees: Maths and Economics (GL11) and Maths and Business (G1NC) are not available in UCAS.
They are only available to Warwick Mathematics students on the G100 or G103 degrees who can transfer to either of these degrees at the beginning of their second year.
To be eligible to transfer to GL11, students need to do the modules Probability B (ST112) and Introduction to Quantitative Economics (EC106) in their first year. No specific first-year modules are required for transferring to G1NC.
Please visit our page specifically relating to STEP, MAT, and TMUA.
Subject to availability of places, yes. We do sometimes allow students to transfer into the second year of the BSc or MMath, provided that they have done exceptionally well on the core first-year modules.
Students without A-level Further Maths are likely to struggle on our degree and we do not usually make them an offer.
If your school does not offer A-level Further Maths, we recommend that you study for it independently with help from the Advanced Maths Support Programme.
For up-to-date information visit our fees and funding pages.
The admissions team will look at all available information when deciding whether to make you an offer, including your personal statement. The personal statement is an opportunity for you to tell us about yourself and why you are interested in studying mathematics at university.
Do not spend too long writing your personal statement. We will not spend more than a few minutes looking at it.
The Master of Mathematics (MMath) is a four-year undergraduate degree. In contrast, the Master of Science (MSc) is a 1-year postgraduate degree and is usually taught at a higher level than the MMath.
The MMath is intended primarily for those wishing to pursue a keen interest in Mathematics towards the frontiers of knowledge and for those expecting to use mathematics in their future careers (e.g. studying for a research degree or working in IT or the Financial Sector).
In the UK, the normal route into a mathematics Ph.D. programme is now via the MMath.
We do not object to resits within the normal two-year A-level period.
For example, you might have taken your A-level Maths at the end of year 12, and it didn't go well; in this case, we're happy for you to retake it at the end of year 13.
However, we're unlikely to make offers to students who need to take resits beyond year 13, unless there are strong mitigating circumstances. Due to the coronavirus and lockdown, we are expecting a good number of such circumstances for 2021 applicants. In this case, you should ask your school to explain these circumstances in their reference.
Please contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office ugadmissions at warwick dot ac dot uk as soon as possible and, preferably, no later than mid-March.
Include your UCAS ID number and the course code applied for in the subject line.
We will, most likely, still make you an offer.
We receive the STEP results automatically for offer holding applicants. Provided you have listed Warwick as a target university when registering for MAT or TMUA we will receive your marks.
We do not have any preference for particular modules in Maths or Further Maths. We are happy for you to take whichever modules you enjoy the most.
Material that is not in the A-Level core, is always covered in our courses from first principles.
A conscientious student can make up the deficit with extra effort.
