Course summary

This programme is delivered full-time over 12 months or part-time over 24 months. The course provides excellent training in many different areas of applied mathematics and equips students with a range of mathematical skills in problem solving, project work and presentation. Our MSc in Applied Mathematics is delivered in small classes and offers a variety of optional modules. You complete a substantial research project, which in the past have often led to publication in scientific journals.

The taught elements of the course begin in the autumn term and you choose four optional modules to study. You choose a further four optional modules in the spring term. You are assessed through coursework throughout the first two terms and complete an exam in May or June. The taught aspect makes up two-thirds of the overall course. You undertake a major research project in the summer term. You’re provided with a list of projects in late November and choose a topic based on your research interests before the end of your first term. You start work on your project early in the second term and the bulk of the project is completed during the summer. The project is submitted in September.

The skills you gain from this programme are highly transferable and open up opportunities for a career in industry, such as in the aerospace, petroleum and financial industries. The solid training in applied mathematics provides the necessary background for further postgraduate study in diverse areas ranging from engineering and physics to finance
