# Mathematics and Computer Science

This is a three or four year course, leading either to a BA degree after three years, or a Masters (MMathCompSCi) degree after four years. All students apply for the four-year course, and then decide at the start of third year whether they wish to continue to fourth year (which is subject to achieving a 2.1 at the end of the third year).
