MSc International Master's in Mathematics and its Applications

The first year of this Master's programme gives students a strong background in mathematics, equivalent to the Graduate Diploma in Mathematics, with second year studies following the MSc in Mathematics and its Applications.

At least one modern application of mathematics is studied in-depth by each student. Mathematical computing and open-ended project work forms an integral part of the learning experience. There are opportunities for outreach and engagement with the public on mathematics.

You'll strengthen your grounding in the subject and gain a sound grasp of the wider relevance and application of mathematics.


Studying Mathematics at postgraduate level gives you a chance to begin your own research, develop your own creativity and be part of a long tradition of people investigating analytic, geometric and algebraic ideas. Under the guidance of internationally renowned researchers in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science (SMSAS), postgraduate students develop analytical, communication and research skills. Developing computational skills and applying them to mathematical problems forms a significant part of the postgraduate training in the School.

The Mathematics Group at Kent ranked highly in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise. With 100% of the Applied Mathematics Group submitted, all research outputs were judged to be of international quality and 12.5% was rated 4*. For the Pure Mathematics Group, a large proportion of the outputs demonstrated international excellence.

The Mathematics Group also has an excellent track record of winning research grants from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Royal Society, the EU, the London Mathematical Society and the Leverhulme Trust.
