About Your Handbooks

Your departmental handbook is part of a three-tier system that will provide you with core information to aid you with your studies, highlight what King’s has to offer and show you what is expected of you. It is your responsibility to read and be familiar with the information in all three tiers:

1. The College Handbook

Provides you with an overview of King's and highlights essential information at College level - signposting you to more detailed information and related support services.

2. The Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (NMS) Handbook

Gives you an overview of NMS (to which the Department of Mathematics belongs), including information about policies and guidelines, learning resources available to you and student representation at faculty level.

3. The Department of Mathematics Handbook

Provides in-depth information for all students studying in the Department of Mathematics.


Rules and regulations

Please note: the rules and regulations outlined in the Department Handbook exist in addition to College regulations. 

Information in the handbook can change from year to year. To ensure that you are reading the correct information please refer to:

  • the current handbook for programme information, e.g. module content (regardless of your year of entry).  For a full list of programmes please see the programmes page.
  • the handbook of the year in which you entered the programme for regulations, e.g. information about resit exams - see the Handbook archive in left hand menu.


Handbook updates

Any major updates or changes to the handbooks that are made within an academic year will be communicated on the handbook updates page

If you come across any missing, out of date, misleading or inaccurate information in your handbook please contact your programme administrator.
