Course summary

The Master of Advanced Study in Mathematical Sciences is a course that is designed to expand and broaden your mathematical knowledge, providing ideal preparation for further academic research. The MASt course offers a wide choice of topics from pure and applied mathematics, including those linked with physics and statistics. You will work under the guidance of academics at the forefront of research, aiding you in the orientation of the most up-to-date areas of knowledge. Course overview The Master of Advanced Study course runs from October to June each academic year. It is a master's level course leading to the same qualification as that awarded to external students taking the Cambridge "Part III" mathematics course. Whereas the MMaths is the fourth year of a four-year programme for students in Warwick, the MASt is primarily the equivalent fourth year for students who had undertaken a BSc outside of Warwick. The course will help you to extend and solidify your mathematical knowledge providing an ideal preparation for further academic research in a concise and stimulating path. It offers a wide choice of advanced math modules, with options in physics and statistics. Warwick’s research reputation attracts academics with a passion for their subject. They will be actively involved in teaching you, providing you with access to the most up-to-date branches of knowledge. You will take an active part in your own learning, working on your own research project under a direction of a supervisor. The high-level skills you will gain provide a strong foundation for a research degree.
