About Mathematics at University of Reading

Gain a masters-level understanding of applied and pure mathematics through a degree that can be tailored to match your interests.

Develop an in-depth understanding of a subject that touches on every aspect of society and the natural world, from the physics of the oceans to the modelling of financial markets. This masters-level degree will allow you to pursue your specific interests, whether you enjoy pure or applied mathematics.

Additionally, the course is approved by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and enables you to apply for Chartered Mathematician status following graduation. It is particularly ideal if you are considering a career as a research mathematician.

During the first two years you will study the main aspects of mathematics and develop your knowledge in areas such as algebra, analysis, calculus and differential equations. In the second year you will also take a skills module, which is designed to improve your transferable skills and enhance your employability.

The next two years are predominantly made up of optional modules, enabling you to tailor the course to suit your interests. These can include areas such as applied analysis, computational modelling, theoretical polymer physics, probability and statistics. One third of your final year will be made up of guided research project, for which you will be given one-to-one supervision by an academic member of staff with expertise in your chosen area. This will culminate in a report and presentation.

You will be given plenty of support to help you get the most out of your studies, including small group problem-solving tutorials and materials to help you manage the transition to university-level mathematics. You will also benefit from around 20 hours of contact time per week. Additionally, you can get involved with the Department's Staff Student Forums and the Student Teaching and Learning Group, which enable you to have a direct input into the student experience.
