The Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Logic programme offered at The University of Manchester is suitable not only for students who wish to improve their background knowledge prior to applying to undertake a PhD by research, but also for students who wish to enhance their knowledge of postgraduate-level abstract mathematics and logic.
The MSc comprises of the taught component, running from the start of the academic year in September until the end of the second semester in late Spring, followed by the dissertation component running from June until September.
During the taught component of the course, you will normally take six units together with a research skills and project unit. On the MSc in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Logic Pathway, you would take the logic units and some pure mathematics units. In the research skills and project unit you will first complete a mini-project to improve mathematical writing skills, and then undertake a project. The project is normally an expository account of a piece of mathematics and you will write this under the guidance of a supervisor. The taught component comprises of conventional lectures supported by examples classes, project work and independent learning via reading material.
The aims of the programme are to provide training in a range of topics related to pure mathematics and mathematical logic, to encourage a sophisticated and critical approach to mathematics, and to prepare students who have the ability and desire to follow careers as professional mathematicians and logicians in industry or research.
