The spectrum of mathematics stretches from the most fundamental and abstract research, to specific theories supporting new scientific findings, to concrete analyses of the world around us. The UNSW Master of Mathematics program offers intensive, high level training in all those aspects of mathematical sciences.
The flexible structure allows you to build a program which suits your individual interest best, as its building blocks consist of both components which address the core theory, and components which explore practical solutions to real-world problems.
