The Master of Mathematical Sciences allows students with a background in a related field to expand their knowledge in the mathematical sciences to an advanced level. Students may specialise by choosing courses in the disciplines of applied mathematics, pure mathematics, and statistics. The program has a full-time duration of two years and consists of 33 units of coursework and a 15-unit research project. Besides a substantial thesis, the project includes a seminar presentation and a series of workshops on research methodology. The program provides a pathway into a PhD program in the mathematical sciences. Upon entry, each student meets with an advisor to prepare a personalised study plan tailored to the student’s background and interests.

Postgraduate research degrees are specialised and research-intensive and based more around one-on-one interactions with a supervisor. Our higher degrees by research can help you make an impact in your chosen area of study.

The school hosts a Postgraduate Seminar Series (see below) for all postgraduate students, so that they can gain experience in conveying research results and ideas, as well as see how others do the same. There are also discipline-specific seminar series hosted by the various research groups within the school, which provide interaction between the postgraduate students and many other academics in their discipline. To further enhance this experience and broaden the school’s postgraduate students' horizons across multiple disciplines, regular attendance at the School Colloquia is also expected.
