The University of Dundee offers lively and modern programmes of study centred on the application of mathematics, presented in a stimulating environment, by experts in the field.
Our mathematics degree is an 'applied mathematics' degree; you will learn to solve mathematical problems at the cutting edge of our understanding of the world around us.
We believe that undergraduates are best served by studying in a Division that is active in research to the highest level, and we are fortunate in having an excellent international reputation for our research work. Our courses are taught by those who have great enthusiasm for their subject, a dedication to it, and an appreciation of the needs of students.
At Dundee, we aim to help you develop the skills and techniques that employers consider vital for entry into a variety of rewarding careers in mathematics and accounting.
Tuition fees are approximate and dependent upon currency exchange rates.Start date September 2015 Duration full-time 48 months Languages Take an IELTS test
At Level 1, one third of your time is devoted to Mathematics, one third to a joint subject (if applicable) and one third to another subject of your choice.
The Mathematics modules cover calculus, algebra, geometry and trigonometry. They will provide you with an introduction to university mathematics, following on from material that you will have studied at school.
At Level 2, students taking a degree fully within Mathematics spend one half (and preferably two thirds) of their time is devoted to Mathematics, joint honours students again split one third Mathematics, one third to a joint subject and one third to another subject of their choice.
Two Level 2 modules extend topics in calculus and linear algebra covered at Level 1. Another pair of Mathematics modules at Level 2 will give you an introduction to Statistics and Discrete Mathematics and, optionally, Mechanics.
On entry to Level 3, you will have the choice of following either a degree programme entirely within Mathematics or a joint Honours degree programme.
Students study a total of either modules, for a degree wholly within Mathematics, all eight modules are taken, for a joint Honours degree with Mathematics, four modules are chosen, of which the first two named below are compulsory:
- Mathematical Methods
- Differential Equations
- Complex Analysis
- Differential Geometry
- Fundamentals of Scientific Computing
- Graph Theory
- Operational Research
At Level 4 you enrol for six modules in areas that relate to our research strengths. There is also an additional project work module, which includes training in personal transferable skills, a selection of mini-projects and one extended project. Joint Honours students take either four of the six modules or the Honours Project and two of the six modules:
- Mathematical Biology I
- Mathematical Biology II
- Mathematics of Fluids and Plasmas I: Fluid Dynamics
- Mathematics of Fluids and Plasmas II: Magnetohydrodynamics
- Ordinary Differential Equations and their Approximation
- Partial Differential Equations and their Approximation
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

"The Academic Excellence Scholarship can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester. These scholarships will be renewed if the student maintains superior academic performance during each semester of their 3-year Bachelor programme. The scholarship will be directly applied to the student’s tuition fees."
Bursary for UK students all subjects where the variable tuition fee rate is payable.
