Entry requirements

The normal entry requirement for the MSc in Mathematics is the equivalent of a British first or good upper second class honours degree in mathematics, or in mathematics with another subject, such as statistics, philosophy, physics or computing. In addition, the undergraduate modules you have taken must provide sufficient background to enable you to take an appropriate selection of our MSc modules.

Pure Mathematics; Algebra; Algebra and Combinatorics; Mathematics and Statistics; Astronomy and Dymanical Systems

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.
