Higher Diploma in Mathematical Sciences


Course Description

This programme is aimed at graduates whose level of mathematical training is high, but below that of the BSc Degree Honours in Mathematics or Mathematical Physics, and who have demonstrated mathematical flair. It enables them to reach in one year a level of mathematical knowledge equivalent to that of BSc Honours graduates and thus, in particular, qualifies them to enter the MSc degree in Mathematics, Mathematical Physics or Mathematical Sciences.

Students in the programme choose one of two streams:

The Applied and Computational Mathematics Stream
The Mathematics Stream

The programme extends over two semesters and involves 60 credits of taught modules.

This programme runs full time for one academic year - September to May (2 semesters)
This programme runs part time for two academic years - September to May (4 semesters)
