Our department is proud to offer a range of degrees that fall within the scope of the mathematical sciences.
For many people our MSc Mathematics may seem like a niche subject, only undertaken by those with a passion for algebra or geometry. But mathematics is a fundamental part of all the sciences and a graduate degree in it can be an excellent springboard for a research degree in a range of subjects. Alternatively, the collection of skills you learn can open doors to a huge range of careers beyond academia.
In addition to our MSc Mathematics, we also offer MSc Mathematics and Finance. This degree is ideal for those who have an undergraduate degree in a mathematical subject and wish to move into a financial career. Topics covered include financial and actuarial modelling, and portfolio and risk management.
Data science courses
We also have a strong background in data science which has led to the development of a range of Masters degree courses related to this field.
Along with our MSc Data Science, our focus on the mathematical side of data has led to specialist courses such as MSc Statistics and MSc Actuarial Science. We also offer a full time two year degree, MSc Data Science with Professional Placement, in which you spend a year working in an organisation in a data science-focused role.
Whichever subject you study you will be taught by experts in the field and will develop an enhanced collection of skills that will be suitable for a variety of careers.
