MSc in Mathematics (full-time and part-time, with options in Statistics)
The MSc in Mathematics gives an in-depth training in advanced mathematics or advanced mathematics and statistics to students who have already done very well in a first degree with high mathematical content. Students successfully completing the MSc will acquire specialist knowledge in chosen areas of mathematics and statistics, and will complete a dissertation demonstrating their ability to work largely independently in an advanced topic in mathematics or statistics.
Why study with us?
- You will be taught by helpful, enthusiastic academic staff who are world-experts in their fields.
- The programme is flexible and it allows you to choose modules in different areas or specialise in one.
- Our unique fast-track statistics option prepares students who have only first-year undergraduate knowledge in probability and statistics to be able to take our advanced statistics modules, and so prepare students for a career in statistics.
- As well as access to the extensive Queen Mary Library resources, MSc Mathematics students enjoy a spacious recently refurbished shared offices in the Mathematics Building and a dedicated computer network with state-of-the-art software and printing facilities.
- We expect to be able to offer on-campus accommodation to all new full-time postgraduate students coming from outside the London area.
The MSc programme, which starts in late September, is offered full-time over one year or part-time over two. Students are required to take eight taught modules (one MSc taught module typically comprises 24 hours of lectures and 12 hours of tutorials given in a 12 week semester), and in addition to submit a project dissertation (completed during the summer). A part-time student typically needs to attend lectures for two or three half-days per week during a teaching semester.
