This one year taught postgraduate programme is a pathway from the MSc in Pure Mathematics, and leads to the degree of MSc in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Logic. 

The programme is suitable not only for students who wish to improve their background knowledge prior to applying to undertake a PhD by research, but also for students who wish to enhance their knowledge of postgraduate-level abstract mathematics and logic.

The MSc comprises of the taught component, running from the start of the academic year in September until the end of the second semester in late Spring, followed by the dissertation component running from June until September. 

During the taught component of the course, you will normally take six units together with a research skills and project unit. On the MSc in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Logic Pathway, you would take the logic units and some pure mathematics units. In the research skills and project unit you will first complete a mini-project to improve mathematical writing skills, and then undertake a project. The project is normally an expository account of a piece of mathematics and you will write this under the guidance of a supervisor. The taught component comprises of conventional lectures supported by examples classes, project work and independent learning via reading material. 

After successfully completing the taught component, you will prepare a dissertation on an advanced topic in mathematical logic, normally of current or recent research interest, chosen in consultation with your supervisor.

You can also take the programme part-time, over a period of two years. There is some flexibility in the precise arrangements for this programme, but you would normally attend two lecture courses each semester for three semesters before commencing work on your dissertation.

Aims

The aims of the programme are to provide training in a range of topics related to pure mathematics and mathematical logic, to encourage a sophisticated and critical approach to mathematics, and to prepare students who have the ability and desire to follow careers as professional mathematicians and logicians in industry or research.

Coursework and assessment

The taught component is assessed by coursework, project work and by written examination. The written exams take place at the end of January (for the first semester course units) and the end of May (for the second semester course units). The dissertation component is assessed by the quality and competence of the written dissertation.

The Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate exist as exit awards for students who do not pass at MSc level.

Course unit details

The taught courses cover material related to the research interests of the academic staff.
