Graduate Diplomas last for six to nine months (full-time) and include the modules and assessed work of a Masters, without a dissertation. Our Graduate Diploma in Mathematics gives you training in basic mathematics techniques if your first degree contained only a modest amount of mathematics, so that you can proceed to a Masters in mathematics.
Our graduates are highly sought after by a range of employers and find employment in financial services, scientific computation, decision making support and government, risk assessment, statistics, education and other sectors.
We also offer supervision for PhD, MPhil and MSc by Dissertation. We have an international reputation in many areas such as semi-group theory, optimisation, probability, applied statistics, bioinformatics and mathematical biology, and our staff are strongly committed to research and to the promotion of graduate activities.
