Mathematical Sciences - MASt (Full-Time, 2019 Entry)

This course will enable you to broaden your mathematical knowledge and provides the ideal preparation for further academic research. It offers a wide choice of advanced modules, with options in physics and statistics as well as mathematics. Warwick’s reputation for research attracts academics with a passion for their subject and many of these academics will be actively involved in teaching you, giving you access to the most up-to-date subject knowledge.

You will take an active part in your own learning, working on your own research project under the direction of a lecturer. The high level skills that you will gain provide a strong foundation for a research degree.

The Master of Advanced Study course is taught by academics with a strong interest in the modules that they lecture and the projects that they supervise. The course is therefore both challenging and rewarding and expected to produce highly-qualified graduates. For example, existing MMath graduates (whose final year is essentially the same as the MASt) are highly sought after with many continuing to academia or business, commerce, and industry.

Contact Hours:

Contact hours will vary between 12 and 14 each week.

Class Sizes:

The class sizes vary between 20 and 70.


The taught element of the course comprises 6 modules (15 credits each) which can be taken from a wide range of options. These must be fourth year modules (MA4 or equivalent). Students are also required to do a research project (30 credits) worth 25% of the final mark.

Our graduates have progressed into roles such as: Postgraduate (PhD level) researcher in Mathematics or Physics, Computer Games Developer, Cryptographer and Data Analyst, Financial Analyst teacher.
