Explore a wide variety of mathematics covering pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and computation, and have the opportunity to explore applications in high-impact fields including climate, healthcare and industrial challenges.

As a Mathematics postgraduate student at Exeter, you’ll be welcomed into a tight-knit, friendly department that supports close personal contact between staff and students.

Our teaching maintains a firm focus on career-orientated postgraduate training, and our graduates are well placed for success in this exciting field. In many of our mathematics programmes you’ll undertake an independent research project to explore your interests in greater depth, with the support of an academic, where you can focus on or contribute to current research.

We ensure that our programmes support the needs of the sector and work closely with a professional advisory group that includes senior managers from companies such as IBM.

We also maintain an excellent reputation for our research in pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics and enjoy active collaboration with the Met Office in Exeter.

The staff are really friendly and the lecturers are really approachable. The course is really interesting and whatever topic I have wanted to learn, we have done at Exeter.

My course will help me to find a job because the modules have been so broad I will have so many transferable skills and the links with industry are great. Being an international student is fun, I've met a lot of other international students and people are really approachable which has meant I’ve made a lot of friends and met people to study with, as well as practising my English skills.
