Program description

Mathematical Biology

Develop your skills, knowledge, and understanding of mathematics to solve biological and biomedical problems. You will then be able to contribute to the rapidly expanding healthcare sector and help tackle major societal challenges, including global sustainability.

You will be able to choose from a variety of modules, including mathematical oncology, physiology, ecology and epidemiology. You will also study dynamical systems, measure theory, and inverse problems, allowing you to shape your study and expand your perspective.

Our weekly Mathematics Seminar program allows you to hear from renowned scientists covering everything from mathematical biology to numerical analysis and scientific computing.

Involving specialist mathematical software programs, you will develop programs and computational frameworks to solve mathematical models that arise from areas such as mathematical biology, optimisation, and finance.

Our department is relatively small, with an excellent staff to student ratio, allowing us to get to know you on a personal level.
