University of Manchester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The Applied Mathematics group in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Manchester has a long-standing international reputation for its research. Expertise in the group encompasses a broad range of topics, including Continuum Mechanics, Analysis & Dynamical Systems, Industrial & Applied Mathematics, Inverse Problems, Mathematical Finance, and Numerical Analysis & Scientific Computing. The group has a strongly interdisciplinary research ethos, which it pursues in areas such as Mathematics in the Life Sciences, Uncertainty Quantification & Data Science, and within the Manchester Centre for Nonlinear Dynamics. The Applied Mathematics group offers the MSc in Applied Mathematics as an entry point to graduate study. The MSc consists of five core modules (total 75 credits) covering the main areas of mathematical techniques, modelling and computing skills necessary to become a modern applied mathematician. Students then choose three options, chosen from specific pathways in numerical analysis and industrial modelling (total 45 credits). Finally, a dissertation (60 credits) is undertaken with supervision from a member of staff in the applied mathematics group with the possibility of co-supervision with an industrial sponsor.The MSc has two pathways, reflecting the existing strengths within the group in numerical analysis and in industrial mathematics. Numerical Analysis - the study of algorithms for the problems of continuous mathematics - has been an area of strength since the first stored-program electronic digital computer, the Baby, was born at the University of Manchester in 1948, and we have run an MSc course in numerical analysis continuously since 1959. The MSc in Applied Mathematics with Numerical Analysis develops essential skills for analysing, designing and implementing mathematical algorithms for leading edge scientific computing. It covers the whole spectrum from fundamental theory through to software development. It is ideal preparation for PhD studies in Manchester's postgraduate community and opens up a wide range of career opportunities.Industrial Mathematics (any aspect of mathematics that can influence the way industry approaches or solves problems) is having an increasing importance within a variety of industrial sectors. Typical examples of industrial modelling problems are modifications to the way that fluid is pumped through a pipe, the design of algorithms for data encryption, modelling new types of materials used for sound reduction, understanding the instability between fluids of different viscosities, and determining how soft tissue deforms under applied forces.
The entry requirement to the programmes is normally a good honours degree in mathematics or a mathematically-related discipline or an equivalent overseas qualification in a mathematical subject.
IELTS: 7.0 (speaking and writing 6.5 and no other element below 6.0)

About this university
Students attend the university from over 150 countries around the world and there are various systems in place to help them adapt to their new life. The Student Immigration Team is a dedicated team in place to help with support and advice regarding immigration and visas and are based at the Student Services Centre. The student support centre is a single contact point for all students to help with matters such as finances, examinations, graduation and other matters. There is also help and advice on hand for matter such as integration into the community, learning English and making the most of the time in the UK. The centre of student life is the Students Union (UMIST), which formed at the same time as the university was created in 2004. It is run by an eight-member team rather than a single president. The athletics Union is responsible for the sports clubs within the university and there are over 80 health and fitness classes in addition to 44 sports clubs. There are around 250 societies and clubs in total across many areas of interest including a student run newspaper, radio station, a fundraising organisation, a volunteer project and across the arts and politics arena.
