Integrated Masters

Students working in a classroom

What is an integrated Masters degree? 

An integrated Masters (MMath) is a four-year degree that extends your three-year undergraduate studies to Masters level. Many students choose to do this due to the greater breadth and depth of study that comes with enhancing their degree. 

Benefits of an integrated Masters 

  • You’ll have the opportunity to be involved in a wider range of project work and study topics to a deeper level, gaining an understanding of advanced mathematical techniques
  • You’ll develop practical transferable skills such as teamwork, decision-making, delegating, identifying and solving problems, and communication, all of which are attractive to employers. 
  • In a demanding graduate employment market, an integrated Masters degree can enhance your employability by advancing your knowledge and equipping you with sought after professional skills.
  • The MMath, BSci and BSci courses have the same entry requirements.
  • The government offers integrated masters funding in the form of standard student finance. Rather than applying for a postgraduate loan, candidates should apply through the undergraduate student finance platform. 

If you decide during your degree that you no longer wish to undertake the fourth year, that isn't a problem. You can switch between the BSc or MMath versions of a course up until the end of your second year, provided you are meeting the required academic standards. You can also switch between our Mathematics and Mathematics and Statistics degrees up until the end of your first year.

Our Actuarial Mathematics BSc and Financial Mathematics BSc degrees share a common first year, allowing you to move from one programme to the other up until the end of your first year.

We usually recommend that international students initially apply for a three-year BSci as there might be visa implications if you decide to switch to a three-year course. You can apply to extend your visa to either an integrated Masters or separate Masters from within the UK.
