You can study this Mathematical Sciences MSc programme full-time or part-time. It offers students the opportunity to specialise in a broad range of areas across pure and applied mathematics, statistics and probability, and theoretical physics.
The topics we cover include:
- advanced probability theory
- asymptotic methods
- mathematical biology
- partial differential equations
- quantum field theory
- singularity theory
- stochastic analysis
- standard model/string theory.
By completing the first semester you qualify for the PG certificate. By completing the second, you qualify for the PG Diploma. Then, by completing your dissertation, you qualify for the MSc.
Graduates of the MSc and PhD programmes move on to many different careers. Recent graduates have moved into fast track teacher programmes, jobs in finance (actuarial, banking, insurance), software development, drugs testing and defence work, as well as University postdoctoral or lecturing posts. The MSc programme is of course a natural route into doctoral study in Mathematics and related fields, both at Liverpool and elsewhere. Some of our PhD students move on to postdoctoral positions and to academic teaching jobs and jobs in research institutes, both in the UK and elsewhere.
