There are four mandatory courses and four optional courses, totalling 120 credits. The mandatory courses concern specific aspects of mathematical modelling in biology ecology and medicine, while the optional courses concern either background material in mathematical analysis, numerical simulation and statistical methods, or complementary material in biological sciences and computer science. Choice of optional courses will be done in consultation with the programme director and will be subject to his/her approval.
Mathematical Ecology; Modelling and Tools; Mathematical Biology and Medicine; Masters Project and Dissertation
Optimisation; Numerical Analysis (ODEs); Statistical Methods; Stochastic Simulation; Applied Linear Algebra; Partial Differential Equations; Numerical Analysis (PDEs); Bayesian Inference
You can exit at the end of 9 months with PgDip Applied Mathematical Sciences with Mathematical Biology, Ecology and Medicine.
Entry is aimed at graduates with strong mathematical knowledge and skills. A good honours degree in mathematics, statistics or a related subject with a substantial mathematical content is desired. Motivation and a willingness to work hard are also important pre-requisites.
