The Department offers four on-campus MSc courses; each programme consists of a wide selection of taught courses, together with a substantial research project, lasting 12 months (full-time) or 24 months (part-time). It also offers a part-time, online MSc programme in MSc Machine Learning and Data Science. Find out more about each programme from the links below.
The taught courses are designed to extend a student’s knowledge of the area significantly beyond a BSc course; the project is intended to develop the student’s ability to work independently on an advanced topic, and to write a concise and coherent account of this work. The project is carried out under the supervision of a member of staff, who agrees the project with the student. For Mathematics and Finance, the project is generally carried out on a placement, typically in a bank.
