Why this course?
The MMath is more challenging than the Honours degree. The aim of this course is to give you the training and skills you'll need for a career in Mathematics. Our graduates go on to work in research and development, telecommunications and consultancy.
Our course shows how mathematics is applied to solve practical problems, meaning you'll learn the skills that employers need. Statistics is the area of mathematics you'll use to explore and try to explain the uncertain world in which we live.
Our flexible degree allows you to transfer between courses with the opportunity to study abroad.
What you'll study
The MMath Mathematics is a five-year programme. Each year contains compulsory classes and some years contain either optional classes, which relate to different areas of mathematics, and/or elective classes from other subject areas in the University. Years 1 to 4 of the MMath and BSc (Honours) degrees follow the same curriculum. It's possible to transfer between the MMath course and BSc Honours course at all stages, subject to satisfactory performance.?
Years 1, 2 & 3
In addition to core mathematical methods, you'll study applied analysis, mechanics, numerical analysis and statistics. You also choose elective classes.
In later years, you'll choose from a range of Mathematics and Statistics classes from one or more specialist areas.
Years 4 & 5
You'll undertake a project and choose from classes in topics such as financial derivatives, mathematical modelling in biology and medicine, numerical analysis, and the mathematics of networks.
Mathematics & Statistics
If you take half of your third and fourth-year classes in Statistics you can graduate with the degree title of MMath in Mathematics & Statistics.
High Flyer Programme
Well-qualified applicants with appropriate A Levels and Advanced Highers will be admitted to the Faculty of Science prestigious 'High Flyer' Programme, which allows students to complete an Honours degree in three years and an Integrated Masters degree in four. If you are studying the relevant subjects you may receive a dual offer, specifying grades to direct entry to Year 2 as a High Flyer and also standard Year 1 entry.

You have the opportunity to spend time studying abroad, normally in the third year of the course. We have links with three universities in Europe for exchanges under the European Union's SOCRATES (ERASMUS) scheme.
You can study at:
We also have links with several non-European universities, and our students have recently studied abroad at:
You'll have access to well-equipped, modern computing laboratories and teaching rooms, as well as 24-hour access to an advanced computer information network and a sophisticated virtual e-learning environment. We have also an undergraduate common room which gives you a modern and flexible area that's used for individual and group study work, and is also a relaxing social space.

Living in Glasgow: Ellie Kissel, MSc Information & Library Studies
I have always wanted to study in the UK and when searching for programems on the American Library Association website, the course at Strathclyde stood out as the one which would enhance my professional career. I love living in Glasgow and it reminds me of the southern hospitality of my home state of Kentucky.
Skills for cutting-edge research: Manto Chouliara, MSc Applied Physics
The course has provided me with a wide range of experimental physics skills and the opportunity to use them in a cutting-edge research project. The multicultural environment on campus supports the collaboration of students from the world, and through numerous group-work projects prepares us for our future jobs.
Course flexibility & further study: Shouyue Wu, MSc Optical Technologies
I've enjoyed the flexible nature of the course which allowed me to choose classes and projects to suit my interests. There's always guidance from staff, not only about studying, but also about living in Glasgow and your future career. I am planning to do a PhD project on optical fibre to prepare me to work in the industry.
