A **Master of Mathematics** (or **MMath**) degree is a specific advanced integrated Master's degree for courses in the field of mathematics.

## United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom, the MMath is the internationally recognized standard qualification after a four-year course in mathematics at a university.^{[1]}
The MMath programme was set up by most leading universities after the *Neumann Report* in 1992.^{[2]} It is classed as a level 7 qualification in the Frameworks of Higher Education Qualifications of UK Degree-Awarding Bodies. The UCAS course codes for the MMath degrees start at *G100* upwards, most courses taking the codes *G101 - G104*.

## Canada

In Canada, the **MMath** is a graduate degree offered by the University of Waterloo. The length of the MMath degree program is typically between one and two years, and consists of course work along with a research component. The first Waterloo MMath degrees were awarded in 1967. MMath is the master's degree offered by David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, since it is within the Faculty of Mathematics at Waterloo.

## India

In India, the **M. Math.** is a graduate degree offered by the Indian Statistical Institute. The course consists of two years and is done in the Bangalore and Kolkata centres in alternating years. The participants are selected through two screening tests along with an interview and it is arguably the best graduate course in mathematics offered in India.
