Develop skills in fundamental aspects of mathematical biology
Learn about mathematical modelling and dynamical systems theory applied to biology, ecology, neuroscience, synthetic biology and medicine, as well as tools for advanced data analysis.
You’ll keep abreast of current research happening in this fast-moving field from a range of internal and guest speakers our regular seminar series
Become proficient in requisite computational tools and techniques with practical sessions including key industry-standard programming languages such as Matlab and Python.
Undertake an independent research project where you’ll explore your interests in greater depth, with the support of an academic, where you can focus on or contribute to current research.
This degree can lead to research roles in many sectors including working for charities, hospitals and healthcare providers. The skills you will acquire in mathematical modelling can be equally well applied to other fields of study such as understanding climate change or conservation and ecology.
For many students a masters course can also lead to further academic study such as a PhD.
Normally a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent in a mathematics, science or engineering subject, with significant mathematics content. IELTS: Overall score 6.5. No less than 6.0 in any section. TOEFL: Overall score 90 with minimum scores of 21 for writing, 21 for listening, 22 for reading and 23 for speaking.
The University of Exeter is a global university and a member of the leading research-oriented UK universities, The Russell Group, The European University Association and the AMBA. As demonstrated in the REF 2014, 98% of the University of Exeter’s postgraduate research has been rated to be of international quality.
Out of its 27,000 students from over 150 countries, 5,600 of these are postgraduates, studying across the university’s three main campuses located across the South West. St Luke’s Campus and Streatham Campus are both based in Exeter, while Penryn Campus is located in Cornwall. All three campuses offer a unique location with beautiful beaches and countryside on their doorstep.
