English Language Requirements
If English is not your first language you will need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency as detailed on our website. Applicants for this course should have a minimum IELTS (Academic Version) English Proficiency of 6 overall (or equivalent) with nothing less than 6 in each component.
Mathematical Sciences encompasses most areas of mathematics and statistics. In this course, you’ll acquire high-calibre analytical, problem-solving skills and the ability to apply a broad range of mathematical techniques and rigour to countless applications and industries.
You’ll gain scientific and analytical skills in mathematics as well as a capacity to solve real-life problems. The first two years will provide you with a sound foundation in mathematics, which will underpin subsequent work and will introduce you to topics in statistics and computer science that can be developed further in later stages through specialised modules.
A strength of the course is that the third and fourth years are designed in a modular fashion, which allows you to tailor your studies. You can choose topics from courses in pure and applied mathematics, statistics, operations research and financial mathematics.
In your final year project, you can engage in an in-depth study of a pertinent, interesting problem in mathematics.
Study Abroad Opportunities
In some semesters of the course, you have the option to study in other European institutions via Erasmus.
Through the six-month placement in Year 3, you’ll gain experience of using your analytical, modelling, problem-solving, and computer skills in a working environment.

Advanced Entry applications are accepted to this course. For further information on how to make an Advanced Entry application, please visit our CAO Hub. A full list of courses open for Advanced Entry are listed on the CAO website.
To qualify for Advanced Entry applicants must be currently studying, completing, or have successfully completed, studies at Level 6, 7 or 8 in a Higher Education Institution (HEI) or an equivalent, in a related area. You must demonstrate by providing transcripts of results that you have achieved the learning outcomes for each stage you wish to advance past, for example:
- To enter Year 2 via Advanced Entry, you must demonstrate that you have met the learning outcomes for Year 1.
- For entry to Year 3, you must demonstrate that you have met the learning outcomes for Years 1 and 2.
- For entry to Year 4, you must demonstrate that you have met the learning outcomes for Years 1, 2, and 3.
If English is not your first language you will need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency as detailed on our website.
The course strikes the perfect balance between pure mathematics and more practical aspects such as financial maths and statistics and computer-orientated modules.
On graduation, you may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide.
