This mathematical sciences masters course will prepare you for the challenges of research in mathematics or statistics. Supported by relevant taught models and by academic supervisors, experts in your chosen specialist subject, you will undertake a year-long research project in which you will experience all stages of the research process.
You'll thrive as you study with our experienced and award-winning academic team.
You will gain deep knowledge of a chosen topic in mathematics or statistics and develop your research skills in project planning, reviewing literature, group discussions, research presentations and writing publications.
You will take two core taught modules each providing you with the underpinning theory to support your research work. You will then choose two optional modules from three pathways: statistics, applied mathematics and pure mathematics.
How you’re taught
In the first two terms you will study your taught modules, in which you will develop your research skills through group work and assignments, and learn cutting-edge mathematics in small-group lectures and seminars. Right from the start, alongside the taught material, you will begin work on your master’s level project, with regular structured meetings with your supervisory team.
Over the summer you will be able to really focus on your project and apply what you have learnt to a specific problem. You will learn through:
group and individual work.
Careers and employability
This Mathematics postgraduate degree provides an excellent platform from which to apply for a PhD in Mathematics or Statistics and your immersion in the research environment means you will really impress at interview. Your research skills mean you will really be able to hit the ground running.
If you are looking for a career in industry, the skills you have acquired on the course – independence, logical reasoning, project planning, intellectual discussions – will mean you are highly employable in industries such as finance, IT, business, teaching and consultancy.
