This programme has been designed to give you an advanced understanding of mathematics. Choose to specialise in a particular area or study across a range of mathematical topics in pure, applied and statistics. You will gain a solid foundation for any career requiring a strong mathematical background, including education, finance and engineering. Our graduate seminars and projects let you work closely with experts at the forefront of research and give you the transferrable skills that are invaluable for employment and further studies at PhD level. You'll be able to enhance your mathematical understanding using computer programming in MATLAB, R, Python and more. The research interests of our staff include: algebra, fluid mechanics, industrial applications of mathematics, theoretical cosmology and astrophysics, statistical mechanics, and data analysis. At Hull, you will be part of a small community of like-minded mathematicians.
Core modules All modules are subject to availability and this list may change at any time. Advanced Mathematical Project In coordination with a supervisor you will choose and study an advanced topic of mathematics. Compulsory modules All modules are subject to availability and this list may change at any time. Graduate Seminar A The graduate seminar allows you to work closely with an academic on a mathematical topic that you are interested in. The module involves regular interactive group discussions, presentations and sharing of knowledge with staff and other students. Graduate Seminar B The graduate seminar allows you to work closely with an academic on a mathematical topic that you are interested in. The module involves regular interactive group discussions, presentations and sharing of knowledge with staff and other students. Optional modules All modules are subject to availability and this list may change at any time. Statistics Important contemporary statistical topics are covered including regression and time series. Coverage of mathematical aspects of regression and the normal family of distributions ensures that due mathematical rigour is also provided. Systems Biology The module covers an important part of 21st Century applied mathematics. Relevant statistical modelling techniques are also discussed. Asymptotic Methods The module lays the foundations for the principled treatment of applied mathematical problems in second semester modules (Applied Complex Analysis and Advanced Fluids) and beyond. Real-world mathematical applications are discussed. The module’s inclusion also means that Hull’s rigorous mathematical traditions are maintained. Mathematical Finance The module covers an important part of 21st Century applied mathematics. The inclusion of econometric modelling as part of this module ensures a treatment of relevant statistical issues. Applied Complex Analysis This is a higher-level module in applied mathematics. Subjects covered in the module underpin applications in 21st century industrial mathematics. Advanced Fluids This is a higher level module reflecting specific expertise, and a proud historical tradition, that Hull has in work on fluid dynamics.
There are three trimesters. During the first two trimesters, you'll study the compulsory modules, and choose four optional modules. For the final trimester, you will work closely with a supervisor on an advanced mathematical project.
How to apply
If you require a Student visa to study or if your first language is not English you will be required to provide acceptable evidence of your English language proficiency level. This course requires academic IELTS 6.5 overall, with no less than 5.5 in each skill. See other accepted English language proficiency qualifications. If your English currently does not reach the required standard, you may be interested in our pre-sessional English Language programmes. Visit your country page to find out more about entry requirements.
Normally a Bachelor Honours degree (typically 2.2 or above, or international equivalent) in a mathematics or related discipline, but applicants with relevant industrial experience may be considered. In order to ensure our students have a rich learning and student experience, most of our programmes have a mix of domestic and international students. We reserve the right to close applications early to either group, if application volumes suggest that this blend cannot be achieved. In addition, existing undergraduate students at the University of Hull have a guaranteed ‘Fast Track’ route to any postgraduate programme, subject to meeting the entry criteria.
