MSc Applied Mathematics
Most things in the real world are complex, from biological systems to the financial markets to industrial processes, but explaining them is essential to making progress. This Applied Mathematics programme at University of Birmingham will equip you with the tools to understand many of these systems.
|Full-Time Duration:||1 year|
|Tuition Fee:||£21,150 per year|
|Location:||Birmingham, United Kingdom|
By developing, analysing and interpreting mathematical models, we gain insight into complex processes and a framework for interpreting experimental data.
Today, there is an increasingly urgent need, in both research and industry, for a new generation of scientists with advanced applied mathematics skills, alongside an ability to absorb information from other disciplines and communicate with other researchers. This programme is designed to develop all of these specific and transferable skills, making you an attractive prospect for employment or further study.

“The transition from undergrad to postgrad can be a big step up in terms of workload and what is expected of you, but there is so much support available to you as a postgrad student, from academic writing support (if you’ve been out of education for a few years or just want a bit of extra help) to mental health and wellbeing services. The careers support is fantastic – the uni puts on employer fairs throughout the year and you have access to one on one support from the Careers Network team, who can help you develop your skills ready for your next step!”

This course is tailored to train students for careers in scientific research, and for employment in a wide range of industrial contexts, for example biotechnology, industrial engineering or the pharmaceutical industry. There is a considerable need for scientists with a strong mathematical and computational background who can communicate with experimental scientists; this MSc will provide you with specialised training, and through your research skills project, evidence that you can work in this multidisciplinary context.
Further transferrable skills developed through this course include team-working, oral and written presentation, problem-solving and time-management, particularly developed through the summer research skills project. Additional careers support is available through the School of Mathematics and from the University’s career support team.
