Mathematics

This programme is designed to be as flexible as possible; you will have a choice of modules taken from our BSc Mathematics. You will meet with the programme director before the start of the academic year and decide on a suitable programme of study, based on your interests and experience. This is an undergraduate-level qualification that will prepare you for postgraduate study. Graduate Certificates/Diplomas typically take one to two years to complete and are made up of two, three or four modules at final-year undergraduate degree level (worth 60, 90 or 120 credits). Highlights - Designed for students with mathematical ability and a first degree in a quantitative subject. - An ideal way to refresh and extend existing knowledge, as preparation for further graduate study, such as our MSc Mathematics, or as a stand-alone course. - Allows you to learn more about the areas of mathematics that most interest you. - Copies of the recommended texts for each module will be available in the Birkbeck Library. The library also provides facilities for private study. There are several computer workstation rooms.

Entry requirements

Graduate Certificate: First degree in a quantitative discipline, such as science or economics, or a joint degree containing some mathematics. In exceptional circumstances, candidates without a first degree in a quantitative discipline may be admitted, provided they have equivalent-level qualifications or professional experience that convinces the admissions team that the programme is suitable for them.
