Mathematics is a fundamental subject that is critical to our understanding of the world. Through the study of mathematics you’ll advance your problem solving skills, develop your reasoning and increase your analytical thinking.
  • Mathematical models underpin engineering, the applied sciences, computing and many aspects of management today. With the MMath you’ll study for a further year and bring your BSc degree to master’s standard. This means you’ll be able to get that competitive edge when you apply for jobs without having to go through the application process again after Level 3.
  • You’ll study many aspects of pure and applied mathematics, together with general concepts of mathematical modelling. When it comes to the application of mathematics, we cover finance, statistics, operational research (how maths can be applied to commercial and industrial problems), numerical analysis (the approximate solution of very hard problems) and mechanics.
  • In your final year you’ll be able to specialise in areas of mathematics that you’re particularly interested in. You’ll produce a substantial research project under the guidance of a tutor in Level 3 and have the opportunity to build upon this as a MMath student.
  • Follow the five-year ‘Professional Placement’ degree programme and you‘ll benefit from our extensive experience in helping students to find well-paid work placements with blue-chip companies. Our sandwich students find that their mathematical and transferable skills are in demand in many sectors, both in the UK and abroad.
  • Areas recently offering placements include: accountancy, aviation, banking, defence, finance, insurance, IT (software development, network management and design), management (public and private sector), marketing and telecommunications.
  • This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master's degrees.

Enrollment Cycles

UK entry requirements

  • GCE A-level ABB, including grade A in Mathematics or Further Mathematics.
  • BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma DDM in any subject plus A-level Mathematics or Further Mathematics grade A.
  • BTEC Level 3 Diploma DM in any subject with an A-level Mathematics or Further Mathematics at grade A.
  • BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma M in any subject with A-levels grades AB including Mathematics or Further Mathematics.
  • International Baccalaureate Diploma 31 points, including 6 in Higher Level Mathematics.
  • Access to Higher Education Diploma Access courses are not accepted for MMaths entry. Access students are encouraged to apply for the BSc degree in this subject and if they achieve sufficient grades on year one of the course they can discuss transferring to the MMath.
  • Five GCSEs at grade C or grade 4 and above are also required, to include Maths and English Language.

EU and International entry requirements

  • If you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, you must prove knowledge of the English language so that we can issue you a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS). To do this, you will need an IELTS for UKVI or Trinity SELT test pass gained from a test centre approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and on the Secure English Language Testing (SELT) list. This must have been taken and passed within two years from the date the CAS is made.

English language requirements

  • IELTS: 6 (min 5.5 in all areas)
  • Pearson: 59 (59 in all sub scores)
  • BrunELT: 58% (min 55% in all areas)
  • TOEFL: 79 (min R18, L17, S20, W17)
  • At Brunel we aim to make your transition into the university style of learning as easy as possible. So in the first few weeks of Level 1 you’ll start your learning in small groups of about 20 students. During your first year you’ll learn how to apply your mathematical knowledge to the real world.
  • By Level 2 you’ll be learning through lectures, seminars and in computer labs, and an individual piece of course-work will account for one third of Level 3.
  • You’ll be able to select from a large number of projects covering a wide range of mathematical areas and applications. Your project will be supervised by a staff member. You’ll emphasise real applications or abstract theories, using theoretical and/or computational tools. If you’ve completed a placement you will be able to choose a project associated with your work experience. Examples of project titles are:
  • The very famous ‘travelling salesman problem’ (also known as ‘the lazy waiter’!);
  • Simulations of iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma and game theory
  • The mathematics of complex networks such as the web or Facebook
  • Applications of statistics to the Premier League, police complaints data and climate change
  • In your master’s year (this is your final year of the programme and called Level 5), you’ll have the chance to build upon your Level 3 project and to specialise in areas of mathematics that particularly interest you.
  • This course can be studied 4 years full-time or 5 years full-time with placement, starting in September.
