All applicants are considered on an individual basis and additional qualifications, professional qualifications and relevant experience may also be taken into account when considering applications.
Months of entry
Studying Mathematics at postgraduate level gives you a chance to begin your own research, develop your own creativity and be part of a long tradition of people investigating analytic, geometric and algebraic ideas.
If your mathematical background is insufficient for direct entry to the MSc in Mathematics and its Applications, you may apply for this course. The first year of this Master's programme gives you a strong background in mathematics, equivalent to the Graduate Diploma in Mathematics, with second year studies following the MSc in Mathematics and its Applications.
Information for international students
Please see our International website for entry requirements by country and other relevant information. Due to visa restrictions, international fee-paying students cannot study part-time unless undertaking a distance or blended-learning programme with no on-campus provision.
English language entry requirements
The University requires all non-native speakers of English to reach a minimum standard of proficiency in written and spoken English before beginning a postgraduate degree. Certain subjects require a higher level.
