About

You can study this Mathematical Sciences programme from University of Liverpool full-time or part-time. It offers students the opportunity to specialise in a broad range of areas across pure and applied mathematics and theoretical physics. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The topics we cover include:

  • advanced mathematical methods
  • algebraic geometry
  • dynamical systems
  • fundamental particle physics
  • mathematical biology
  • singularity theory
  • solid mechanics
  • stochastic analysis
  • string theory
  • wave propagation and scattering

By completing the first semester you qualify for the PG certificate. By completing the second, you qualify for the PG Diploma. Then, by completing your dissertation, you qualify for the MSc in Mathematical Sciences programme from University of Liverpool .

Career prospects

Graduates of the MSc and PhD programmes move on to many different careers. Recent graduates have moved into fast track teacher programmes, jobs in finance (actuarial, banking, insurance), software development, drugs testing and defence work, as well as University postdoctoral or lecturing posts. The MSc programme is of course a natural route into doctoral study in Mathematics and related fields, both at Liverpool and elsewhere. Some of our PhD students move on to postdoctoral positions and to academic teaching jobs and jobs in research institutes, both in the UK and elsewhere.

General requirements

  • Applications are welcome from students who have (or expect to obtain) an Honours degree in Mathematics. The usual minimum requirement for entry is a 2:1 degree classification, but we consider all applications on their individual merits, taking the transcript, references and personal statement into account.
  • Applicants who have degrees with Mathematics as a major component (e.g. physics or engineering) are also welcome to apply. In this case we may look for higher marks to offset the lower number of credits earned for mathematics modules.
