Before You Arrive

I now hold an unconditional offer for the MathSys programme, what are the next steps?

The Postgraduate Admissions Service will send you communications via email and you will be able to access the offer-holders portal for further information.

Where can I find guidance on enrolment and practical information?

We would suggest you look at the University's Welcome pages in the first instance. Please note that the MathSys CDT Welcome Week programme, which will be emailed to you, takes precedence over the Welcome Week activities organised by the university.

Where can I find guidance on academic preparation for the MSc in Mathematics of Systems?

You may already have looked at the course structure prior to applying and may wish to revisit these pages in advance of starting on the programme. The mandatory taught core modules will not vary significantly from year to year. On each of the module pages you can access the module resources such as the syllabus, reading lists, and notes. You may wish to look at these resources if you would like to do some reading in advance of starting on the course.

In term two, you will take optional modules and do not need to make these choices until after arriving on campus, by which time you will have had the opportunity of discussions with the MSc Coordinator and your personal tutor. The availability of optional modules varies from year to year, so although the current listing of optional modules is a good indicator of the types of module available, many are run by other departments and we cannot guarantee that they will be available every year.

What about other MathSys activities?

You can get a sense of the kinds of activities that take place in the CDT by reviewing our news feed, our Twitter account, and the CDT calendar of events.
