Course summary

MSc in Mathematics

Delve deep into the aspects of pure and applied mathematics that interest you. Choose from areas such as fractal geometry, coding theory and calculus of variations. Advance your career with a high-level qualification. Choose from a wide range of modules. There are topics for not only mathematicians but engineers and mathematically inclined scientists. You’ll conclude with an independent study, exploring a topic in detail and submitting a dissertation.

Key features of the course

  • Ideal for mathematically inclined scientists and engineers as well as mathematicians.
  • Extends your knowledge and refines your abilities to process information accurately, and critically analyse and communicate complex ideas.
  • Develops an enhanced skill set giving you an advantage in careers beyond mathematics, such as education, computer science, engineering, economics and finance.
  • The UK's most popular MSc in Mathematics.

Career relevance

Mathematics postgraduates can be found throughout industry, business and commerce, in the public and private sectors. Employers value the intellectual rigour and reasoning skills that mathematics students can acquire, their familiarity with numerical and symbolic thinking and the analytic approach to problem-solving which is their hallmark.

There are a variety of reasons for studying mathematics at postgraduate level. You may want a postgraduate qualification in order to distinguish yourself from an increasingly large graduate population. You may find that your undergraduate mathematical knowledge is becoming insufficient for your career requirements, especially if you are hoping to specialise in one of the more mathematical areas, which are becoming more sought after by employers. Or you may want to move on to a PhD in Mathematics. The extent of opportunities is vast and mathematics postgraduates are equipped with skills and knowledge required for jobs in fields such as finance, education, engineering, science and business, as well as mathematics and mathematical science research.
