This Pure Mathematics MSc course offered at Imperial College London provides training in different aspects of Pure Mathematics, equipping you with a range of mathematical skills in problem-solving, project work and presentation.


You have the opportunity to learn advanced core pure mathematics topics together with a range of more specialised options, and undertake an independent research project in your chosen area.

The taught element of the Pure Mathematics MSc course offered at Imperial College London begins in the autumn term and continues into the spring term. The full-time programme is made up of eight taught modules, but you are only assessed on seven of these. Part-time students study four modules in the first year, and take three modules in the second year.

The taught courses cover a range of topics in analysis, geometry and topology, number theory, algebra and combinatorics that reflect the research interests of the Pure Mathematics section.

As well as attending taught courses, you undertake independent work on a written project. A list of projects and supervisors is issued before the end of the first term. You choose your supervisor and topic toward the end of November, and begin working on your project in the second term. The project is then submitted in September.


Our graduates find employment in a range of fields, including education, research, actuarial analysis, risk analysis, investment banking and management consultancy.
