Maths Master's Degrees

The links below will take you to the central course pages where you will find an overview of the course- including entry requirements, modules, assessment, and teaching, how to apply as well as information about life at Warwick.

MSc in Mathematics

Degree length and content:

  • This one-year degree covers a full range of both pure and applied areas
  • The degree involves lecture modules and a dissertation (typically written in the summer)

Who is this course for?

  • Candidates with a strong and broad mathematical background
  • Perfect for candidates who wish to focus on primarily mathematical questions

MSc in Interdisciplinary Mathematics

Degree length and content:

  • One-year degree incorporating mathematics and another discipline. For example, Mathematics and Physics
  • You will take modules both in Mathematics and from at least one other department
  • Dissertations are expected to be interdisciplinary

Who is the course for?

  • Candidates who want to explore Mathematic connections to other disciplines

Master of Advanced Study (MASt) in Mathematical Sciences

Degree length and content:

  • Nine-month course running from October to June
  • A masters-level course that offers the same qualification that is awarded by the Cambridge "Part III" mathematics course
  • MASt students pursue the same studies as Warwick mathematics students in the fourth year of their MMath degree
  • The requirements and course structure for MASt and MMath are the same

Who is the course for?

  • For those who did a BSc outside of Warwick and wish to pursue a further degree- equivalent to the final year of the MMath

MSc in Mathematical Finance

Degree length and content:

  • One-year degree offers a high-level mix of mathematical and financial disciplines
  • Taught by three of the University’s top departments: Mathematics, Statistics, and the Warwick Business School
  • The degree is administered by the Warwick Business School

Who is the course for?

  • You are interested in interdisciplinary degrees with mathematics and any type of finance

Difference between MASt and MSc:

  • The MASt and MSc degrees differ primarily in the length of time it takes to complete the course and the weighting of the dissertation on the final mark.
  • The MASt finishes in June and incorporates a research project worth 25% of the final mark.
  • The MSc runs for the whole academic year and incorporates a longer dissertation worth 50% of the final mark.

Mathematics or Interdisciplinary Mathematics?

Mathematics at Warwick covers a full range of both pure and applied areas. The Mathematics Postgraduate Degrees are appropriate for students with a strong and broad mathematical background who wish to continue to focus on primarily mathematical questions in their postgraduate work.

Requirements and procedures for Interdisciplinary Mathematics degrees are very similar to those for the Mathematics degrees, except that any coursework and all research involves both mathematics and another discipline. For example Mathematics and Physics, Mathematics and Biology, or Mathematics and Economics. To achieve this, students are required to take modules both in Mathematics and from at least one other department. Theses and dissertations are required to be interdisciplinary.

Students interested in interdisciplinary degrees with mathematics and any type of finance will be directed to the Financial Mathematics MSc.
