Course content

This course has been created to equip graduates with advanced mathematical tools that can be used to explain the world around us. You’ll have the freedom to choose from a selection of topics in applied mathematics, theoretical physics, statistics and data science. These modules are designed so that you can study the fundamental theories that govern the universe, and develop mathematical skills to explain and predict physical phenomena.

You'll spend around one-third of your time working on your own research project, under the supervision of an expert from the University of Sheffield's School of Mathematics and Statistics or Department of Physics and Astronomy.
