Various postgraduate courses of a mathematical nature are available at the University of Cambridge, including both taught courses and research degrees.
- Master of Mathematics / Master of Advanced Study
- The Master's is a taught one-year Master's course, and is excellent preparation for mathematical research. For historical reasons it is also known as 'Part III of the Mathematical Tripos'. Students attend lectures and take written exams at the end of the course. There is also an option to submit an 'essay' on a topic of current interest.
- M.Phil. Courses
- Single year Masters courses focussing on different areas of mathematics and related disciplines are offered by various departments and institutes within the University.
- The Faculty of Mathematics also offers training for a Ph.D. Degree. Students spend around three years conducting original research in mathematics, before submitting a single dissertation and taking an oral examination.
