Our MSc in Mathematical Sciences is a flexible and challenging programme, taught by leading experts in the field. It will help you to develop a wide range of mathematical techniques and gives you a solid foundation for further research or employment at the highest levels. Under the guidance of an academic mentor, you will be offered a choice of units spanning the breadth of mathematics. There is a wide variety of combinations of units and themes, allowing you to add units from other schools to create an MSc that closely matches your interests. The taught element is followed by your chosen research project, which is supervised by an experienced research academic. The programme gives you the opportunity to increase your understanding of mathematical theory and equips you with fundamental skills in the modelling and analysis of problems. Our graduates are highly sought after by employers for their strong analytical, communication and organisational skills.
The MSc in Mathematical Sciences comprises a taught component running from October to May (120 credit points), followed by a 60-credit research project between June and September. There is an extensive range of possible combinations of units and themes. An academic mentor will advise you on unit selection and meet regularly with you individually or in small groups throughout the taught component. You are also encouraged to participate in the wider academic life of the school, including research seminars, reading clubs and social events.

How to apply
We welcome students from all over the world. We currently have students from more than 120 countries studying here at Bristol. Having a diverse cultural community provides a stimulating environment for both teaching and learning, for more information please visit: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/international/countries/
Applicants should possess a first-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in mathematics or a very closely related subject (for example, statistics or mathematical physics), with at least 50% of the degree background in theoretical mathematics. Professional experience or other qualifications are very unlikely to be relevant.
