Course content

The Mathematics MSc programme offers you the choice to study either full or part-time, taking a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits, including 60 credits that will come from a research project and dissertation. You will explore mathematical areas including Analysis, Geometry, Number Theory and Theoretical Physics, and there are opportunities to explore a broad range of additional modules, allowing you the freedom to develop a study pathway that reflects your interests – see the course structure for full details of available modules.

If you are studying full-time, you will complete the course in one year, from September to September. If you are studying part-time, your programme will take two years to complete. You will study optional modules in your first year, and a further selection of optional modules and the 60-credit project and dissertation module in your second year.

King's is also a member of the University of London and by arrangement, you can enrol in optional modules at some institutions within the University of London, including University College London, Royal Holloway and Queen Mary University London.
