## Information for students from other departments

This applies to students on honours degrees from departments other than mathematics who wish to take a mathematics module in 2018-2019. (Affiliate students should contact the Mathematics Department Affiliate Tutor, Dr Lars Louder, l.louder@ucl.ac.uk.) Syllabuses can be found on the Mathematics Department webpage and timetables on the UCL common timetable using the custom feature and the module code. Please see here for list of Ancillary modules and below for guidance on what action you need to take.

1. **If your module is
compulsory and appears on portico you need take no further action.**

**2.** **In the
following cases, you just need to put the module on portico, after looking at
the module syllabus and timetable and checking that this is what you wish to
take and that you have the right background (if in doubt, please seek advice):**

(a) You are a second or third year student
from *Economics* choosing MATH0047 Advanced
Linear Algebra as advised by your home department; you are a third year student
from *Economics* choosing MATH0050
Logic and you have achieved 60% or better in MATH0047 (was MATH6403); you are a
student from Economics choosing MATH0048 Mathematical Analysis and you have
either an A* in Further Maths A-level or strong results in Mathematics modules at
UCL.

(b) You are a student from *Statistics* choosing MATH0048
Mathematical Analysis and you have either an A* in Further Maths A-level or
strong results in Mathematics modules at UCL; you are a third year student from
*Statistics *choosing MATH0050 Logic
and you have achieved 60% or better in MATH0047 (was MATH6403).

(c)
You are a first year student from *Chemistry* choosing MATH0040 Mathematics
for Science 1/ MATH0041 Mathematics for Science 2 as advised by your home department;
you are a second year student from *Chemistry*
taking MATH0042 Mathematical Methods in Chemistry as advised by your
department.

(d) You are a second year student from *Neuroscience* or *Biomedical Sciences* or *Psychology*
choosing MATH0040 Mathematics for Science 1 as advised by your home department;
you are a second year student from *Neuroscience*
or *Biomedical Sciences* or *Psychology* choosing MATH0041 Mathematics
for Science 2, having previously taken MATH0040 (was MATH6105).

(e) You are a second year student from *Physics *taking MATH0043 Mathematics for
Physics and Astronomy as advised by your department; You are a third year
student from *Physics* taking MATH0025 Mathematics
for General Relativity as advised by your department.

(f) You are a *SSEES* student choosing one of the standard options MATH0039 Differential
and Integral Calculus and/or MATH0045 Calculus
and Linear Algebra and are sure you have the right prerequisites (neither
under-qualified nor overqualified);

(g) You are a student from *Geology, Earth Sciences* or *Management* taking MATH0049 Mathematics
for Engineers 1 as advised by your department.

(h) You are a *BASC* student choosing modules as advised by your department.

*Normal prerequisites for these
modules*

MATH0025: good result in MATH0043 (was MATH6202)

MATH0039: A-level grade below A or lower qualification

MATH0040: grade A in A-level Maths, OR good result in MATH0039 (was MATH6103) in previous year.

MATH0041: MATH0040 (was MATH6105)

MATH0042: MATH0040/MATH0041 (was MATH6105/6106)

MATH0043: first year Mathematics modules offered by Physics or MATH0040/MATH0041 (was MATH6105/6106)

MATH0045: grade A in A-level Maths

MATH0046: MATH0045 (was MATH6401)

MATH0048: A* in Further Maths A-level or strong results in UCL Mathematics modules

MATH0050: 60% or better in MATH0047 (was MATH6403)

**3.** **In other cases, you can put the module on portico, but should seek
advice** either by e-mail to m.l.roberts@ucl.ac.uk
or at the induction week advice sessions. If you e-mail, please put subject line
MATHEMATICS OPTION and include in your e-mail your name and student number,
your degree, and your background in Mathematics (A-level results, results in UCL
Maths modules, etc). The induction week
sessions will be in Room 707 of the Mathematics Department on Tuesday 25^{th}
Sept and Thurs 27^{th} Sept 2.00 – 4.00. It is particularly important to get advice if
you are choosing an honours Mathematics module, i.e. not one of those appearing
on the Ancillary Mathematics Modules list.

Please note that all choices of mathematics modules will need to be approved on PORTICO by both the Maths department and by your home department before your module registration is confirmed. Preference is given to certain groups of students on some modules, but otherwise earlier registration on portico will make it more likely that you get a place. You may be rejected by the teaching department (Mathematics) either if you have unsuitable background for the module or it is full.

Late choice/problems: please contact me on m.l.roberts@ucl.ac.uk (please use subject line MATHEMATICS OPTION)
