Study Details

MSc: 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time

Mathematics holds relevance to a wide variety of topics that drive advancement in the world. Without it, subjects such as physics, medicine, computer science, social sciences and finance would not be as they are today, or even in existence. Mathematics is seamlessly ingrained into our society and has provided us the tools and knowledge to question and understand the world we live in. Those who study mathematics are developing a critical subject that holds the upmost potential, however one desires to apply it.
