Course content

Our course focuses on applied and computational Mathematics, which is our team’s research specialism and a skill set valued by employers. During the course you will have the opportunity to develop both subject-specific skills (applicable in, for example, the biosciences, finance sector and engineering) and key transferable skills (including IT, problem solving, and written and oral communication).

We have put together a course to cater for the needs of both Single Honours Mathematics graduates and graduates who have studied Mathematics as part of a degree – for example, you may have studied Mathematics as part of a joint honours course or as part of a physics-related degree.

You will have the opportunity to work on projects directly linked to the programme team’s own research, which includes work of both a theoretical and practical nature. You will also have access to specialist mathematics computing facilities and a well-stocked library, including electronic resources.

We have a number of resources in place to facilitate part-time study, and we welcome enquiries from people who wish to pursue their academic studies while remaining in employment. We also invite you to contact us if you are someone who would ordinarily find it difficult to attend timetabled lectures at Thornton.
