Mathematics is a core scientific subject and an essential basis for a range of other sciences. This programme brings together the latest developments in a range of mathematical disciplines to provide you with a thorough grounding in the subject, together with a substantial project that can be used to develop a specialisation.
Internationally leading research supports this programme, with particular research strengths including magnetic fields, interface of algebraic number theory and abstract algebra, climate system dynamics and display-structure on crystalline cohomology. The programme prepares you for a career in numerous industries or for progression to a PhD for those interested in pursuing a research pathway.
The programme comprises three compulsory taught modules and 90 credits of option modules. The taught component of the programme is completed in June with the project extending over the summer period for submission in September.
The compulsory modules can include; Research in Mathematical Sciences; Advanced Mathematics Project and Analysis and Computation for Finance
Some examples of the optional modules are as follows; Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics; Methods for Stochastics and Finance; Mathematical Theory of Option Pricing; Dynamical Systems and Chaos; Fluid Dynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans; Modelling the Weather and Climate; The Climate System; Algebraic Number Theory; Algebraic Curves; Waves, Instabilities and Turbulence; Magnetic Fields and Fluid Flows; Statistical Modelling in Space and Time and Mathematical Modelling in Biology and Medicine.
The modules we outline here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand.
We offer a range of postgraduate scholarships and studentships for talented students. For 2016 entry, the total value of scholarships for taught postgraduate programmes exceeds £500,000. This is in addition to over 100 PhD studentships we make available each year.Students who reside in England and are interested in our Masters programmes can now take advantage of the UK government's postgraduate loan scheme which offers loans of up to £10,000.
Value of Scholarship(s)
Varies, but most awards are competitive and merit-based.
