Course content

If you see yourself as a research mathematician of the future, this course could appeal to you. For enthusiastic mathematicians, it’s a chance to further develop your knowledge if you already have an undergraduate Mathematics, Physics or Statistics degree. If your academic background is not in these areas, this course could still appeal if you’re a strong mathematician looking for a return to formal education.

Your studies will include a mix of lecture-based modules and independent research. In your final year, you’ll be able to explore a chosen subject in depth and present your findings in a written dissertation.

Many of our MSc postgraduates have gone on to study for a PhD in Mathematics or moved into scientific research. Other alumni have entered careers that include banking, finance and insurance.
