Postgraduate taught

Develop your professional skills, deepen your understanding and enhance your career prospects with our selection of postgraduate degrees.

Whether you’re continuing from undergraduate study, returning to education or changing direction completely, a master's degree in mathematics from Cardiff University can help you to stand out.

You’ll develop specialist mathematical knowledge which will set you apart from the rest of your peers and prepare you for entry into the workforce or a related research career.

There’s a wide selection of optional modules to choose from, and plenty of opportunities for you to develop the professional skills that employers are looking for. You may even find yourself working with well-known companies in the UK and further afield to solve current, real-world problems thanks to our strong links with industry. We have well-established relationships with many employers in related fields, who regularly offer projects and recruit our students.

Master's degree programmes

We offer five taught MSc degrees with most available on a full-time or part-time basis.

Dissertation

The project dissertation provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate in-depth knowledge and understanding of the skills you have acquired in the taught part of the programme.

It could involve working with a company on an important project, developing an existing area of mathematical theory not covered in taught modules or the development of a piece of mathematical software.

As a large employer in this field at the forefront of the data revolution, we wholeheartedly welcome Cardiff University’s MSc courses, which can provide the vital analytical, statistical and computing skills that we look for when recruiting postgraduates.
