MSc + PhD 1 + 3 in Mathematics of Systems

Would you like to learn how to use novel mathematics to tackle real-world problems? This MSc and PhD-combined course bridges three key areas: Complexity Science; Systems Biology and Infectious Disease Epidemiology Research.

The taught element of the course will equip you with the necessary skills required for the PhD, during which you can work on specialist mathematical solutions to global challenges. You’ll have the opportunity to identify real-world systems and explore how they can benefit from mathematical techniques. As your studies progress, you’ll become open to new ways of thinking, combining cutting-edge mathematical skills with the ability to understand and model real-world systems. You’ll also learn how to analyse complex data sets, work well in multidisciplinary teams and become an effective communicator.

Throughout the course, you’ll benefit from the first-hand expertise of our collaborative partners from industry, finance and health. As a result, you’ll graduate with excellent employment prospects and the relevant experience to work at the forefront of academic and industrial research.

Applications for MSc only are welcomed but there is no Research Council funding available for this option so applicants would need to source their own funding.
