Loughborough University Maths

Our Mathematics courses provide a balanced study of the most important aspects of maths so that you can achieve a thorough understanding of the fundamentals to help prepare you for a successful career.

The MMath course is especially suitable for those interested in research careers in mathematics in universities, industry or research establishments.

Progress on the MMath course is dependent on a high level of attainment at the end of Years 1 and 2. Transfer to the MMath course from the BSc course is also possible for students performing sufficiently well.

The MMath and BSc courses in Mathematics are the same over Years 1 and 2
