Course content

Overview

This course is designed to build on your existing mathematical skills and allows you to both broaden and deepen your understanding of the branch or branches of mathematics which most interest you.

The flexibility of this course allows you to either keep your studies broad, learning a range of mathematical techniques, or specialise in areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics or statistics depending on your interests. These can range from algebra, analysis and logic to financial mathematics, fluid dynamics and mathematical biology.

Course content

This course is designed to build on your existing mathematical skills and allows you to broaden and deepen your understanding of the branch or branches of mathematics which most interest you.

There is a range of taught modules to choose from, providing the opportunity to combine mainstream, advanced mathematical topics and innovative methods relating to the research interests of the School of Mathematics.

A dissertation in mathematics will account for 60 credits of your final mark on this course. This is an opportunity for you to pursue a particular topic in-depth: your supervisor will help you to find a project that matches your interests and motivations for studying this degree.

Some examples of past projects include:

  • Cluster Algebras
  • Nonstandard Analysis
  • Combustion Waves
  • Planetary Motion in General Relativity

You must enrol on 180 or 185 credits in total, made up from both taught modules and an individual research project.

Modules

Compulsory modules

  • Dissertation in Mathematics

Optional modules (selection of typical options shown below)

Learning and teaching

Teaching is by lectures, tutorials, seminars and supervised research projects. Extensive use is made of IT and a wide range of materials is available to enable students to study at their own pace and in their own time to enhance and extend the material taught formally.

Assessment

Assessment is by a range of methods, including formal examination, in-class tests, example sheets, problem solving, project work and verbal presentations.

The research project will be assessed based on 85% from the written report, and 15% from an oral presentation. It will contribute 60 credits to the overall total.

Applying, fees and funding

English language requirements

IELTS 6.5 overall, with no less than 6.0 in all components. For other English qualifications, read English language equivalent qualifications.

Improve your English

International students who do not meet the English language requirements for this programme may be able to study our postgraduate pre-sessional English course, to help improve your English language level.

This pre-sessional course is designed with a progression route to your degree programme and you’ll learn academic English in the context of your subject area. To find out more, read Language for Science (6 weeks) and Language for Science: General Science (10 weeks)

If you need to study for longer than 10 weeks, read more about our postgraduate pre-sessional English course.
