A BSc degree with a 2:1 (hons) in mathematics or computer science (with a substantial mathematics component), or equivalent. We will also consider students who hold other degrees with a substantial mathematics component.
Months of entry
This interdisciplinary Masters degree provides you with a broad background in some mainstream and modern aspects of mathematics and computer science. You’ll be introduced to sophisticated techniques at the forefront of both disciplines.
The programme combines teaching and research from the School of Mathematics and the School of Computing. Based on the Schools’ complementary research strengths the programme follows two main strands:
- Algorithms and complexity theory
- Numerical methods and parallel computing
You’ll have the choice to specialise in one of these strands, gaining specialist knowledge and skills that will prepare you for a wide range of careers. You’ll also develop your research skills when you complete your dissertation.
If you do not meet the full academic entry requirements then you may wish to consider the Graduate Diploma in Mathematics. This course is aimed at students who would like to study for a mathematics related MSc course but do not currently meet the entry requirements. Upon completion of the Graduate Diploma, students who meet the required performance level will be eligible for entry onto a number of related MSc courses, in the following academic year.
