Course content

The influence of mathematics can be felt in almost every aspect of modern life, including finance, medical sciences, digital communications – even weather forecasting.

From geometry, analysis, partial differential equations and mathematical physics to fluid dynamics, meteorology and modelling in life sciences, our MSc in Mathematics offers you an extraordinary range of research opportunities, working to tackle the most crucial scientific questions of our age.

Our MSc reflects and benefits from the strong research activities of our Department of Mathematics.

The taught modules and dissertation topics are closely aligned with the interests of the Department’s five research groups: Mathematics of Life and Social Sciences; Dynamical Systems and Partial Differential Equations; Fields, Strings and Geometry; Nonlinear Waves and Geometric Fluid Dynamics; and Data Science and Dynamics.

During the first two semesters, you’ll select a range of taught modules from an exciting and comprehensive list, followed by an extended research project conducted over the summer under the supervision of a member of the Department, culminating in the writing of a dissertation.
