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

For students who do not yet meet the A Level requirements for our BSc programmes, we offer the option of a Mathematics foundation year. This equips you with the skills and experience you need to successfully progress on to one of our BSc programmes.

The one year Foundation Programme enables progression on to all of our BSc programmes except BSc Mathematics with Management (G12N), and BSc Mathematics, Statistics and Financial Economics (GL11).  You will be able to choose the degree programme onto which you want to progress during your foundation year, so long as you meet the minimum progression requirement, which will include an average of 60% across all modules.

The formal title of this Foundation Year in UCAS is the "Science and Engineering Foundation Programme (Mathematics) and the course code is GGX1.
