Programme structure

The programme for the Master in Mathematical Sciences is composed of:

  • core subjects of 50 credits, of which 26 credits are for the dissertation;
  • a focus of 30 credits;
  • one option and selected courses for 40 credits.

Note here that:

  • a part of the programme of study corresponding to around 30 credits (some of which may be involved in writing the dissertation) may be performed in the context of one of the international mobility programmes established by the Faculty.
  • Courses already taken as part of the in-depth minor in mathematics may not be included in the student’s Master programme
  • With the agreement of the School of Mathematics, the student may defer to the second year an activity scheduled for the first year or bring forward to the first year an activity scheduled for the second year (with the exception of LMAT2997 and LMAT2999). In these cases, timetable clashes may arise. For a standard programme, this Master will total, whatever the focus, the options and/or the optional courses chosen, a minimum of 120 credits divided into two annual sections of 60 credits each.

For a programme-type, and regardless of the focus, options/or elective courses selected, this master will carry a minimum of 120 credits divided over two annual units, corresponding to 60 credits each.
