Our Mathematics MSci will give you the foundation you need in advanced mathematics. In your fourth year you will conduct a research project, pursuing your own interests and acquiring the skill of independent academic research. This course leads to careers where mathematics is used technically, including industrial and academic research and finance, but will also suit those who wish to deepen their undergraduate studies. You also have the option to transfer to the five year Mathematics with a Year Abroad MSci pathway where you will spend your third or fourth year abroad at a partner institution before returning to King’s to complete your studies. This depends on you reaching a certain grade average and being accepted by a partner university.
