Entry requirements

The majority of our applicants will have an undergraduate degree with first class or upper second class honours (or international equivalent). Offers will typically be made at 2.1 level (upper second class) or equivalent. Students with a good lower second class degree may be considered on an individual basis.

For this programme we expect you to have completed an undergraduate degree in mathematics, or in mathematics with another subject, such as statistics, physics or computing.

Course content

The School of Mathematical Sciences offers a flexible MSc in Mathematics to students who have already done very well in a first degree with high mathematical content. The MSc programme, which starts in late September, is offered full-time over one year or part-time over two.

The modules (lecture courses) offered reflect the research strengths of the School of Mathematical Sciences, and are concentrated in pure mathematics (especially algebra and combinatorics), probability and statistics, dynamical systems, and networks. Students can study mostly pure mathematics, pure and applied mathematics (including, if desired, some astronomy and relativity), or mathematics with statistics. The MSc in Mathematics includes a project dissertation, and can provide excellent preparation for those interested in pursuing research in mathematics or statistics.
