- The latest revision of the 2013–14 Study Programme Guide is attached at the bottom of this page as a single hyperlinked PDF/A document. The programme directors have not yet been updated. The most recent changes are that the GG14 programme now refers to ECS rather than DCS modules and the final year of GL11 has reverted to the 2012–13 wording. Please see also the list of Mathematical Sciences modules to be offered in 2013–14 (full details will follow later). A table of current Physics equivalents to withdrawn Applied Mathematics modules is also attached at the bottom of this page.
- Current programmes
- Old programmes
- Royal Statistical Society (RSS) accreditation
- Exemptions from professional examinations
Study programme guides are provided below as PDF files. Please read the introduction for general information before looking at your specific programme, and refer to our module web pages for full details of all Mathematical Sciences modules.
You may also find our 2010–11 subject stream diagrams useful. They indicate how our main modules are related and give a pictorial indication of prerequisites within four subject areas – Algebra and Discrete Mathematics, Analysis and Geometry, Applied Mathematics, Probability and Statistics – one per page of the PDF file.
Please see our module registration guide for details of registering your modules in SIS. Do not take a compulsory module as an option in an earlier year; it will cause problems with module registration in future.
Applications to change programme made in the first few weeks of the academic year may take several weeks to process due to Registry workloads and this may delay your module registration. Please submit applications to change programme before 15 September.
Provided you have not interrupted your studies for any reason, you should follow the current study programme for your degree course:
- Introduction and all study programmes (hyperlinked PDF/A)
- G100 BSc in Mathematics
- G110 BSc in Pure Mathematics
- GG31 BSc in Mathematics and Statistics
- GL11 BSc in Mathematics, Statistics and Financial Economics
- G1N1 BSc in Mathematics with Business Management
- GN13 BSc in Mathematics, Business Management and Finance
- G1N4 BSc in Mathematics with Finance and Accounting
- FG31 BSc in Mathematics and Physics
- GG14 BSc in Mathematics and Computing
- G1C8 BSc in Mathematics with Psychology
- G102 MSci in Mathematics
- G1G3 MSci in Mathematics with Statistics
A change of regulations requires MSci students starting in September 2012 to take only level-7 modules in their final year; hence the new programmes listed above. Students who started at Queen Mary before September 2012 are not affected.
If you began a BSc programme in 2009–10 or earlier (or an MSci programme in 2008–9 or earlier) then you should follow the study programme listed below corresponding to the academic year when you began your programme and you may need to ask the Director of Undergraduate Studies to arrange for your module registration in SIS to be corrected as a special case. Note that you can only take modules that are currently available.
- 2008–9 or 2009–10: follow the programmes published in 2010
- 2007–08 or earlier:
- GN13 or G1L1. But please note that:
- Economics renamed ECN273 Capital Markets to ECN226 Capital Markets 1 over summer 2010, so you need to take ECN226 Capital Markets 1 in order to satisfy your programme requirements;
- you are not allowed to take BUS306 Financial Management (which is in the current programmes but not the old ones).
- all other programmes
- GN13 or G1L1. But please note that:
Royal Statistical Society (RSS) accreditation
Our current (December 2011) accreditation status is that:
- the MSci in Mathematics with Statistics is accredited;
- the BSc in Mathematics and Statistics is accredited, but graduates who wish to apply for RSS Graduate Statistician status must produce a transcript showing statistics content of 50% in the final year and 50% overall.
For example, taking all eleven probability and statistics modules currently available at level 4–6 (including the 30-credit Advanced Statistics Project) should meet the requirement for BSc accreditation.
Exemption Recognition Agreement for CT3 – Probability and Mathematical Statistics
The Actuarial Profession has agreed to award exemption from CT3 to students who achieve an average examination mark of 60% or higher on the three modules:
- MTH5120 Statistical Modelling I
- MTH5121 Probability Models
- MTH5122 Statistical Methods
It is possible to take these three modules in all our degree programmes except FG31, although in some cases you must select your options appropriately.
This agreement first takes effect for students taking these modules in the academic year 2011–12.
