About Mathematics at Cardiff University

Our MSc Mathematics delves into the fascinating, challenging and elegant world of mathematics; taking your skillset and knowledge base from a BSc in Mathematics (or similar) towards a point where you can embark on original research in pure and applied mathematics.

The course consists of a mixture of taught modules in pure and applied mathematics, self-study modules which build skills crucial for both a research degree and the workplace, and a dissertation, which allows you to research mathematics under the guidance of experienced, research active academics.

This one year degree is the ideal preparation if you want to go on to do a PhD, work in research or for a technological company. You will gain a deeper understanding of mathematics and develop skills in demand by a range of prospective employers.
