Advanced Mathematical Biology MSc

Study Details

MSc 1 year Full-time

The MSc in Advanced Mathematical Biology is an intensive one year taught programme that will prepare students either for a career in industry in the quantitative life sciences or for further academic research in Mathematical Biology; providing insight into processes over a wide range of scales: from highly symmetric capsids to the interactions of entire communities in oceans.

This programme aspires to fill the language gap between technical mathematical concepts and real-world applications in the biological and life sciences. Students will gain a comprehensive grounding in cutting-edge theory coupled to training in the subtleties of application. Advanced statistical methods, systems biology and biological fluid dynamics will be covered, and there will be emphasis on applications to policy and industry throughout.

Entry Requirements

Candidates are expected to have a good honours undergraduate degree in either a mathematics-based subject and a lively interest in applying mathematical techniques to biology, or in a biological-based subject with a significant quantitative bias.
If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to. For more information, see:
