Course summary

Mathematical Sciences broadens your mathematical knowledge and provides the ideal preparation for further academic research. The MASt course offers a wide choice, including physics & statistics, alongside academics at the forefront of research, aiding you with the most up-to-date subject knowledge.

Course Overview

This course will enable you to broaden your mathematical knowledge and provides the ideal preparation for further academic research. It offers a wide choice of advanced modules, with options in Physics and Statistics as well as Mathematics. Warwick’s reputation for research attracts academics with a passion for their subject and many of these academics will be actively involved in teaching you, giving you access to the most up-to-date subject knowledge. You will take an active part in your own learning, working on your own research project under the direction of a lecturer. The high level skills you will gain provide a strong foundation for a research degree.

Teaching

The Master of Advanced Study course is taught by academics with a strong interest in the modules that they lecture and the projects that they supervise. The course is therefore both challenging and rewarding and expected to produce highly-qualified graduates. For example, existing MMath graduates (whose final year is essentially the same as the MASt) are highly sought after with many continuing to academia or business, commerce, and industry.

Assessment

The taught element of the course comprises 6 modules (15 credits each) which can be taken from a wide range of options. These must be at an appropriate advanced level. Students must also conduct a research project and write a substantial dissertation. This is worth 30 credits and constitutes 25% of the final mark.
