Fast Track Pure Mathematics MMath (Hons) 2020 entry

It is possible for students applying for the MMath in Pure Mathematics to complete their degree in four years instead of five by taking the Fast Track degree route.

Fast Track students take the same modules required by the Pure Mathematics MMath programme, but at an accelerated rate. This route allows students to take a mixture of first-year and second-year modules, giving them a gentle start to first year, but then progresses to an accelerated sequence of modules. This means students will have an increasing workload over the remaining years of study to ensure advanced topics are reached by fourth year.  

To find out more information, or to discuss the possibility of taking the Fast Track route, please contact Admissions at admissions@st-andrews.ac.uk.
