Graduate Diploma in Mathematics


Programme Director:  Dr Mahir Hadzic

The Graduate Diploma programme consists of a one-year full-time study programme or a two-year part-time study programme. You must take eight modules which may include an individual project on a subject of your choice. 


Programme Description

You must select eight of the optional modules listed below including at least six third year (level 6) modules, subject to the approval of the Programme Director. The list of permitted options includes second and third year modules which can be taken by Single Honours BSc/MSci students of Mathematics. Exceptionally you may be permitted to take fourth year (level 7) modules and up to two first year (level 4) modules. In such cases the permission of the Programme Director and the relevant module lecturer must be sought.

You may, subject to the approval of the Programme Director, also take up to two modules at other colleges of the University of London. Please note however that should you select Intercollegiate modules and fail them, you may not be able to re-sit them until the following year in accordance with the rules of other colleges of the University of London. 

NOTE: you may not enrol on a module that you have already taken and passed at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. Nor may you enrol for a module that overlaps with another module that you have already taken and passed. Modules will be deemed to overlap if both the content and the level of complexity are similar.
