Advice on how to plan your exchange within the Bachelor of Science

## Pure Mathematics Specialisation

**Optimal exchange dates: **Year 2: Semester 1

**Planning your exchange: **It is easiest to go on exchange in Semester 1 of Year 2 when pursuing the Pure Maths specialisation of the Mathematics and Statistics major. The only pre-requisite requirement in this semester is MAST20026 Real Analysis.

**Things to consider: **The Faculty of Science has currently mapped one equivalent to MAST20026 Real Analysis and will continue this process. In the interim, students interested in taking exchange in the Pure Maths specialisation are encouraged to investigate options at partner institutions.

## Applied Mathematics Specialisation

**Optimal exchange dates: **Year 2: Semester 1

**Planning your exchange: **It is easiest to go on exchange in Semester 1 of Year 2 when pursuing the Applied Maths specialisation of the Mathematics and Statistics major. The only pre-requisite requirements in this semester are MAST20026 Real Analysis and MAST30030 Vector Calculus.

**Things to consider:** The Faculty of Science hasn’t mapped many subject equivalent to either MAST20026 Real Analysis or MAST30030 Vector Calculus. This does not preclude students from attempting to find equivalent subjects at partner institutions.

## Mathematics & Statistics (Operations Research / Discrete Mathematics specialisation)

**Planning your exchange:** Semester 2 of Year 2 is the easiest time to go on exchange for students pursuing Mathematics & Statistics (Operations Research / Discrete Mathematics specialisation). When planning exchange, students should be aware that they need to complete MATH20018 Discrete Maths and Operations Research.

**Things to consider: **At this stage the Faculty of Science has not mapped any subjects equivalent to MAST20018 Discrete Maths and Operations Research, but this does not preclude students seeking equivalent subjects at partner institutions.

## Mathematics & Statistics (Statistics / Stochastic Processes specialisation)

**Planning your exchange: **The optimal time to go on exchange when pursuing Mathematics & Statistics (Statistics / Stochastic Processes specialisation) is in Semester 2 of Year 2. The only pre-requisite requirement during Semester 2 is MAST20005 Statistics. The Faculty of Science has mapped numerous subjects at partner institutions equivalent to MAST200005 Statistics.

Mapped subjects for the Mathematics and Statistics major (all specialisations) include:

University of Melbourne subject | Partner institution | Equivalent subject | Notes |
---|---|---|---|

MAST20026 Real Analysis | University of California, Berkeley | MATH 104 Introduction to Analysis | Covers the material of MAST20026 (except for the material on proof techniques) and some extra material on metric spaces. Students are advised to do some additional reading on proof techniques before taking this subject. |

MAST20009 Vector Calculus | Carnegie Melon University | Calculus in Three Dimensions | Subject is missing general curvilinear coordinates and the vector identities, but is still a good replacement for MAST20009 |

MAST20005 Statistics | McGill University | Statistics, MATH324 | |

MAST20005 Statistics | National University of Singapore | Mathematical Statistics, ST2132 | |

MAST20005 Statistics | University of Bristol | Statistics 2, MATH20800 | |

MAST20005 Statistics | University of Connecticut | Statistical Methods, STAT3025Q | |

MAST20005 Statistics | University of Glasgow | Statistics 2S: Statistical methods, STATS2003 | |

MAST20005 Statistics | Carnegie Melon University | 226 Introduction to Statistical Inference | |

MAST20005 Statistics | University of California, Los Angeles | 100B Introduction to Mathematical Statistics | |

MAST20005 Statistics | University College Dublin | %20Module%20Search<%2FA>">STAT20060 Statistics and Probability | |

MAST20005 Statistics | University College Dublin | STAT10060 Statistical Modelling | |

MAST20005 Statistics | University of Edinburgh | MATH10095 Statistical Methodology | Level 3 undergraduate |

MAST20005 Statistics | University of Edinburgh | MATH08051 Statistics | Level 2 undergraduate |
