University of Nottingham
Mathematical Medicine and Biology
The MSc Mathematical Medicine and Biology will provide you with skills suitable for a research career in the exciting and growing field of mathematical medicine and biology. You will take core modules in biology and the application of mathematics to medicine and biology. More advanced modules will introduce research topics in biomedical mathematics, including options in Computational Biology and Theoretical Neuroscience. The taught training programme will be followed by a substantial individual project leading to a dissertation. Throughout the course, the exceptional strength of the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology will facilitate your hands-on experience of interdisciplinary biomedical research.
Lower 2nd Class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in Mathematics or a closely related subject with substantial mathematical content. Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS: 6.0 (with no less than 5.5 in any element) or TOEFL: 79 (with no less than 17 in Writing and Listening, 18 in Reading and 20 in Speaking).
Modules include: Biomolecular data and networks; cell structure and function for engineers; computational and systems biology; mathematical medicine and biology; mathematical medicine and biology dissertation; practical biomedical modelling; theoretical neuroscience; topics in biomedical mathematics.
You will typically be assessed by an examination at the end of the semester in which a given module is taught. Over the summer period towards the end of the course, you will undertake a research project. This research will be of some depth and will form the basis of your dissertation; it will be carried out under the supervision of a member of academic staff.
