# 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. In order to proceed into the fourth year (part C), students will need to achieve a 2:1 or higher classification at the end of their third year.
