  • Programmes and units may be changed in accordance with normal University procedures.
  • This programme catalogue is applicable for all years of study for the 2020/21 academic year only. Students continuing their studies into 2021/22 and beyond should not assume that this programme, or its component units, will be delivered in future years in the format displayed here.
  • NFAAR assessment regulations are subject to review and update. Links given here will provide access to the latest versions of NFAAR documentation. The regulations described in this documentation may not necessarily be those which applied in previous academic years. For detailed information on how the NFAAR was applied to this programme in previous academic years, please contact the relevant Director of Studies.
  • Availability of units is subject to constraints such as staff availability, minimum and maximum group sizes, and timetabling factors as well as a student's ability to meet any pre-requisite rules.

Year 3

  • Students must take units totalling 60 credits for the year, normally 30 credits each semester.
  • The year programme must include at least 3 units from the union of lists A1 and A2 and at least 2 units from the union of B1 and B2.
  • Students may choose no more than 24 credits from List C during this programme year.
  • Students may not choose more than 12 credits of level 2 units during this programme year.
  • Students may not choose more than four level 4 units without obtaining approval from the Director of Studies (see Maths UG Zone on Moodle - link opens in new tab).
  • Students must check the teaching timeslots (pdf - link opens in new tab) when choosing units. To minimise timetable clashes, you should not choose more than one unit from each timeslot within the same semester.
  • Any student wishing to transfer/recover to the MMath during this year must ensure that they choose units which can lead to the the satisfactory completion of either a BSc or MMath degree - please contact your Director of Studies for advice.
