Mathematics Department Undergraduate Handbook

The following pages are a guide to undergraduate degree courses for students in the Department of Mathematics on the Maths BSc or MMath courses, and on joint degree courses run by the Mathematics Department (in particular Maths and Economics years 1 and 2, Maths and Business Studies years 1 and 2: in subsequent years students transfer to the partner department).

"General Information" is mainly module advice and useful information to get the most out of your degree, "Rules & Regulations" contains the more detailed information on what you can, and cannot do, and more detail about the regulations governing your degree.

We make every effort to ensure that the information here is accurate. However, the final arbiter of university policy in case of disagreement is the official university regulations, as laid down in the Calendar.

Information and Updates

Undergraduate Handbook updates

Please note that now all the exam boards are over we are beginning Undergraduate Handbook updates. This is done over the summer ON THE LIVE SITE, so if you access it you will see information changing for next year, and occasionally dead links as we move things around. Links to module Moodle pages will remain the old pages or become broken links until they have been updated. There is a pdf version of the current site uploaded for reference, link at bottom of main page.

Until the start of September you should bear in mind that not all the information in the handbook will be correct, indeed, there are likely to be small changes to the availability of 3rd or 4th year modules even after pages have been updated so please do not make any definitive plans on module choices until September.
