About This Course

Our four-year integrated Master’s course is ideal if you want to take your studies to the next level and prepare to work in academia or research. Going into greater depth than our three-year BSc programme, it’s a flexible course that allows you to specialise in either pure or applied mathematics, or a combination of the two.

In your final year you’ll take on a substantial research project. This will give you experience in independent study and help improve key career skills such as literature reviewing, critical thinking, report writing and oral presentation. So you’ll not only graduate with a deep understanding of mathematics, but also with great career prospects.

At UEA you’ll benefit from internationally recognised, research-led teaching and a high academic-staff-to-student ratio, ensuring you graduate with a deep understanding of mathematics, and great career prospects. Lectures are complemented by small group teaching in your first year and regular workshops in later years, ensuring you get quality contact time with world-class lecturers.

Overview

Our prestigious four-year Master of Mathematics degree programme will allow you to delve deeper and further develop your interests in pure and applied mathematics.

Our flexible course format will enable you to decide whether you want to focus on pure mathematics, applied mathematics, or a combination of the two. And – as well as engaging in the study of essential mathematical theory and technique – you’ll have the opportunity to carry out a substantial research project in your final year. The project is designed to not only allow you to experience the challenge of independent study and discovery, but to also develop skills that are essential to many future careers.

If you complete your studies with distinction, you may want to join our active group of postgraduate students, as our integrated Master’s programme is excellent preparation for a career in research – either in industry or within a university. This is just one of the many challenging career paths open to our Master of Mathematics students.
