Bachelor of Mathematics (Advanced)
This challenging Bachelor degree is available to students
who have superior mathematical knowledge on entry, allowing
the amount of first year mathematics subjects to be significantly
reduced. This enables students to take enrichment projects,
which provide opportunities to build links with industry and
to understand the interaction between mathematics and society.
Students will also have close interaction with active academic
researchers.

students, please refer to the relevant prospectus.
Course Requirements
To qualify for the award of the degree of Bachelor of Mathematics
(Advanced), candidates must satisfactorily complete at least
144 credit points from either or both the Mathematics and
the General Schedule including:
 MATH110
 CSCI114
 Each of the subjects MATH201, MATH202, MATH203 and MATH204
 Each of the subjects MATH212, MATH222 and STAT231
 the subject MATH235 or STAT235
 the subject MATH345 or STAT345
 300 level subjects from the Mathematics Schedule with
a value of at least:
 36 credit points, or
 24 credit points, if there is a major study in Computer
Science
 30 credit points, if there is any other major study
 a major study in Mathematics or Statistics (apart from
MATH345 and STAT345)
 no more than 60 credit points at 100 level.
 continuation in the Bachelor of Mathematics (Advanced)
(code 762A) will normally be dependent upon achieving an
average of at least 75% each year. Students who do not meet
the required average will be transferred to the Bachelor
of Mathematics degree (code 762).
Note that a student could do some 300 level subjects in
second year.
Course Program
Recommended Program in Mathematics, Statistics
plus another discipline
The following is a possible enrolment program for someone
doing a "major" in a discipline other than Mathematics,
Statistics or Computer Science. [NOTE that a program like
this does not mean that the formal requirements for a major
in the other discipline will be satisfied. Candidates are
advised to check the requirements for a major in other disciplines
listed under the Bachelor of Mathematics degree regulations.]
Considerable variation is possible.

Honours
A fourth year of study, Honours, is available to students who have achieved a Distinction average or better in the BMath(Adv). It is a challenging program, that includes a research project. Students who wish to enter the Honours program should obtain the approval of the Honours Coordinator at the end of their third year.
