This intensive introduction to advanced pure and applied mathematics draws on our strengths in algebra, geometry, topology, number theory, fluid dynamics and solar physics.
You’ll attend lectures but you’ll also get hands-on research experience, writing a dissertation supervised by an active researcher.
Our graduates go into finance, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals. They work for government agencies and research institutes with major organisations such as First Direct, GlaxoSmithKline, Marks and Spencer, the Government Statistical Service and Medical Research Council units. Our courses can also prepare you for PhD-level research.
Our academics are in demand. They are members of international societies and organisations, and they speak at conferences around the world. They bring new ideas into the classroom so you can see how research is improving on existing approaches. Our solar scientists were the first to record musical sounds created by vibrations in the sun’s atmosphere.
Our Statistical Services Unit works with industry, commerce and the public sector. The services they provide include consultancy, training courses and computer software development.
You can study full-time over a year or part-time over two to three years via online distance learning. The MSc Mathematics is only available as a full-time course.
