Degree programmes

Our range of degree programmes allows you to choose a mixture of modules best suited to your interests. Most students take at least one module with a computational component and you will have access to top-class computing facilities. The modular system at Queen Mary makes it possible to choose one of several degree programmes, either in mathematics alone or in mathematics combined with other subjects.

All our degree programmes require grade A in GCE A-level Mathematics, or equivalent; for full details please see our entry requirements.

Full details of our degree programmes can be accessed by clicking on the title in the list below.

Professional Placement year

We offer a Professional Placement (or "Year in Industry") option across many of our undergraduate programmes (see the full list in the table above).

A professional placement year is an excellent opportunity to develop your business skills and gain hands-on experience. This would take the form of a one-year paid work placement in the third year of your study within a relevant organisation, extending your degree programme to four years.

For more information on Professional Placement opportunities, click here.


Year Abroad

You can choose to apply for a four-year version of our BScs (five-year for MSci programmes) with a Year Abroad. Paying reduced fees for the year you spend overseas, you would study with one of our prestigious partners in Europe, North America, Australia, or Asia.

Foundation Programme

We also offer a mathematics stream of the Science and Engineering Foundation Programme (SEFP/ISEFP), designed for applicants with an unusual academic background (e.g. mature applicants or applicants with non-standard qualifications) who do not meet our normal entry requirements.  It is also suitable for students whose Mathematics A Level (or equivalent) grade falls below expectations, and is designed to develop the skills and knowledge required to be successful in an undergraduate mathematics degree programme.

The one year Foundation Programme enables progression on to all of our BSc programmes except BSc Mathematics, Statistics and Financial Economics (GL11). The UCAS code for the SEFP leading to a Mathematical Sciences degree programme is GGX1 for a BSc (4 years including Foundation) and it may be possible to transfer later to an MSci (5 years including Foundation). You choose the degree programme to which you want to progress (any except GL11) during your foundation year.

Professional accreditation and exemptions

We offer exemptions and accreditations through a number of external professional bodies, including:

  • Institute and Faculty of Actuaries exemptions
  • Chartered Institute of Management Accountants
  • Chartered Insurance Institute Recognition of Prior Learning
  • Royal Statistical Society
