MSc in Applied Mathematics (Programme code 02250172)

Admission requirements

An appropriate BScHons degree with a minimum of 60% for all modules at honours level. In the selection procedure the candidate’s complete undergraduate and honours academic record will be considered. It is strongly recommended that Measure and integration theory, Functional analysis, Partial differential equations, and Numerical analysis are included at honours level.

Admission is subject to the availibility of a suitable supervisor. 

The final approval is granted by the Faculty Postgraduate Committee.

Duration

Subject to other faculty regulations, a student must complete his or her masters studies within two years after first registering for the degree. 

Programme composition

The programme consists of two mandatory non-credit bearing master’s coursework modules and a dissertation (180 credits). 

Modules: Two "WTW" Master's modules (mandatory, non-credit bearing)
