Types of projects

Group Project: taken by 2-4 students working as a team, a single report is produced, a single presentation is given.

Individual Project: is worked on individually with limited number of available topics.

This is compulsory for MMath students in their final year and is not available for MMath students in year 4.

The credit level is 11. A high standard of mathematical presentation and reasoning is required to gain a good grade.  

Students on combined degrees normally have to take this, or an equivalent 40-point project/dissertation in the other School.

Applied Mathematics students must do such Double project in an agreed area of Applied Mathematics. 

Mathematics and Physics students may take the 20 point individual project as an alternative.
