BACHELOR OF SCIENCE HONOURS: APPLIED MATHEMATICS
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
The admission requirement for the Honours degree in Applied Mathematics is a Bachelor’s degree, with a weighted average of at least 60% in Applied Mathematics as a major subject. Candidates who have not obtained an average of at least 60% in this major subject will only be admitted to the Honours programme with the special permission of the Department, and on such conditions as may be determined by the Department. Candidates must in addition have completed the prerequisites for the modules which they select.
GENERAL
The Honours programme runs over a year and consists of four taught modules (2 compulsory and 2 electives) and a compulsory project. Successful completion of the project is required for the degree. The project must be completed and submitted for assessment the first week of the November examination period.
The elective modules offered in any year will depend on both the availability of staff and student demand. A candidate may, with the approval of the Department, replace one of the elective modules with another appropriate module.
