General requirements

  • 2:1 in Mathematics as a main field of study and good marks in relevant courses.

  • Normally we require a UK 2:1 (Honours) or equivalent in relevant subjects but we will consider high 2:2 or relevant work experience. 
  • Candidates with professional qualifications in an associated area may be considered. Where a ‘good 2:2’ is considered, we would normally define this as reflecting a profile of 57% or above. Exceptionally, at the discretion of the course director, qualifications in other subjects (for example, physics or computer science) or degrees of lower classification may be considered.
  • All teaching at Royal Holloway is in English. You will therefore need to have good enough written and spoken English to cope with your studies right from the start
