These minimum requirements are offered as a guide only.  Mathematics at St Andrews is very popular and we receive well over 10 applications per place. We seek to recruit students who are not only enthusiastic about Mathematics but also possess the potential to be successful.  We cannot offer all applicants a place but every application we receive is considered on merit.

An application for MMath Mathematics, UCAS course code G100, gives you access to everything on offer within Mathematics and Statistics.  If you complete sufficient modules in Statistics you can graduate with a Statistics degree which is accredited by the RSS (PDF, 50 KB).

If you decide that you do not wish to pursue a MMath programme you can change to the Single Honours degree Mathematics or a Joint Degree, at a later stage.

Please note that within the BSc/MA Mathematics degree programme you can, if you wish, take Statistics options and complete a degree with a substantial Statistical component. If you complete sufficient modules in Statistics you can graduate with a Statistics degree which is accredited by the RSS (PDF, 50 KB).

 

All students are assigned an Advisor of Studies who will guide you through the options available to you at each stage of your career with us.
