Why study MORSE at Warwick?
- MORSE is a Warwick invention. It was created in the mid-1970s by a team of far-sighted academics and has developed into a flagship degree programme. This means that modules are specifically designed for MORSE students.
- Our curriculum contains a balance of mathematical theory and its applications, emphasising the links between theory and practice, and equipping you with transferable skills including analytical thinking, crossdisciplinary communication and mathematical and statistical modelling.
- All modules are taught by subject specialists, and the curriculum is organised collaboratively by the Departments of Statistics, Mathematics, Economics, and the Business School, all of which have consistently had a high percentage of their research graded as ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world-leading’ in the most recent external research assessments.
- We offer an unusual level of flexibility regarding optional modules. You can choose to change between the three-year and four-year course at any point before the end of your second year. You can also apply to transfer between MORSE and Mathematics and Statistics.
- If you choose our four-year MMORSE degree and go on to become an actuary, you will be exempt from some Institute and Faculty of Actuaries examinations.
