Course summary

Our course focuses on applied and computational Mathematics, which is our team’s research specialism and a skill set highly valued by employers. During the course you will have the opportunity to develop both subject-specific skills (applicable in, for example, the biosciences, finance sector and engineering) and key transferable skills (including IT, problem solving, and written and oral communication). Why study this course with us? We have put together a course to cater for the needs of both Single Honours Mathematics graduates and graduates who have studied Mathematics as part of a degree – for example, you may have studied Mathematics as part of a joint honours course or as part of a physics-related degree. You will have the opportunity to work on projects directly linked to the programme team’s own research, which includes work of both a theoretical and practical nature. You will also have access to specialist mathematics computing facilities and a well-stocked library, including electronic resources. We have a number of resources in place to facilitate part-time study, and we welcome enquiries from people who wish to pursue their academic studies while remaining in employment.

Assessment method

Assessment is through a combination of examination and coursework, including worksheets, investigations and small projects. Your dissertation will give you the opportunity to work on a larger research project.


Entry requirements

Applicants would normally be expected to hold a Mathematics-related first degree (minimum of 2:2 honours). Applicants may be interviewed prior to acceptance on the course to ensure that they have the necessary mathematical background. International: Students from countries outside the UK are expected to have entry qualifications roughly equivalent to UK A Level for undergraduate study and British Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) for postgraduate study. To help you to interpret these equivalents, please click on your country of residence to see the corresponding entry qualifications, along with information about your local representatives, events, information and contacts. We accept a wide range of qualifications and consider all applications individually on merit. We may also take into account appropriate work experience.
