- You may be allowed, with the approval of the Programme Director, to take up to 30 credits in non-standard options (modules not listed in the programme diet above).
- Non-standard options may be any level 7 modules in Mathematics, Physics, Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics, and Centre for Bioinformatics at King’s as well as any module relevant to the Complex Systems Modelling programme taken from the University of London, excluding Birbeck, LSE and Imperial College.
- You cannot take a module for which you have previously been examined as part of an undergraduate or postgraduate programme at the University of London.
- You cannot take more than 3 modules from Financial Mathematics.
- Be aware that by registering modules from other departments or programmes, you will be liable to the rules of those departments or programmes (schedule of exams, reassessment etc).
In order to progress to the project students must have:
- At least 90 credits passed
- No more than 30 credits in the condonable range
- An average of at least 50%
- Normally no mark below 40
Part-time students must pass at least 45 credits to progress to the second year of study. Students who fail one or more examinations in their first year of study will be permitted to proceed to their second year of study only at the discretion of the Board of Examiners.
