Mathematics at Cambridge
The Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Stastistics and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics together constitute the Faculty of Mathematics, and are responsible for some of the teaching of mathematics and its applications within the undergraduate Mathematical Tripos course (Parts IA, IB, II and III). DAMTP is also responsible for the teaching of mathematics within the Natural Sciences Tripos (Parts IA, IB, Part III Astrophysics and Part III Physics).
Part III Mathematics, leading to the MMath/MASt, is a graduate-level course of unique character and standing, offering an exceptionally wide range of options. Over 100 entrants each year study it within DAMTP. Those entering in 2003 came from nineteen different countires in every part of the world, with overseas and continental European students in a substantial majority over students from Cambridge and other UK universities. The normal criterion for admission to the course is a first class Honours Degree, or its equivalent, in mathematics or theoretical physics. Please note that an offer of a programme of study at the University requires an offer of membership from one of the University's 31 Colleges.
