    The course includes a wide range of lecture modules in analysis, geometry and topology, algebra, number theory and combinatorics. You also undertake a written project under the direction of a supervisor who is an expert in that field.

    The programme is organised into two course elements: the first element consists of eight lectured courses, each examined by a written paper (normally four per year in the part-time option); the second element consists of a project, examined by a written report and an oral examination. The project must be the study of some mathematical topic in one of the core areas of:

    • Analysis
    • Algebra
    • Geometry
    • Number Theory and Combinatorics


    Each module will normally last for one term. The following is a guide to the modules that will be available for study.


    • Elliptic partial differential equations
    • Fourier series, probability
    • Functional analysis
    • Measure and integration
    • Potential theory
    • Stochastic analysis
    • Stochastic processes

    Geometry, topology, number theory

    • Algebraic topology, differential geometry, algebraic geometry
    • Elementary and algebraic number theory
    • Elliptic curves and diophantine equations
    • Geometry of curves and surfaces

    Algebra and combinatorics

    • Galois theory, coding theory, algebraic graph theory
    • Group theory
    • Lie algebras and algebraic groups
    • Representation theory
    • Rings and modules

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    The minimum qualifications for admission are normally a degree of 2:1 or higher, or an equivalent overseas qualification, in Mathematics or a related subject, such as Engineering or Physics.

    If your first degree is from a country other than the UK, you may find the guidelines within our Country Index helpful. Please note that these guidelines indicate the College minimum. Our requirement is usually higher.

    Duration1 Year

    Application Deadline Date 31-MAR-2015

    Selection Process

    To apply please submit a short essay entitled "Why I am interested in credit scoring", which should be no more than one A4 page in length, to the Department of Mathematics by 31 March 2015. Your essay will be used along with your admission application and references to assess your academic merit and potential.

    You must have received an offer to study an MSc degree in Statistics by 31 March 2015.

    Applications will be ranked within the Department of Mathematics and the scholar demonstrating the most academic potential will receive the award.

    Outcome of the Award

    The successful applicant will be notified by email no later than 1 June 2015. If you have not received confirmation of an award by this date please assume you have been unsuccessful in your application.

    Before applying
