Overview

  • Develop skills in fundamental aspects of mathematical biology.
  • Learn about mathematical modelling and dynamical systems theory applied to biology, ecology, neuroscience, synthetic biology and medicine, as well as tools for advanced data analysis.
  • You’ll keep abreast of current research happening in this fast-moving field from a range of internal and guest speakers our regular seminar series.
  • Become proficient in requisite computational tools and techniques with practical sessions including key industry-standard programming languages such as Matlab and Python.
  • Undertake an independent research project where you’ll explore your interests in greater depth, with the support of an academic, where you can focus on or contribute to current research.

Teaching and research

Mathematical Biology is an important field of research that is crucial for developing our understanding of living systems. In turn, the complexity of living systems can inspire the development of new mathematical approaches.

The University of Exeter encourages inter-disciplinary working, and we have a growing team of researchers tackling some of the most important current problems in the field. In particular, we collaborate with experts in biology and medicine in order to use mathematics to build a better understanding of disease, thereby improving diagnosis and treatment.

Research-led teaching

We believe every student benefits from being taught by experts active in research and practice. You will discuss the very latest ideas, research discoveries and new technologies in seminars and in the field and you will become actively involved in a research project yourself. All our academic staff are active in internationally-recognised scientific research across a wide range of topics. You will also be taught by leading industry practitioners.

Assessment

Modules are either assessed by coursework only, or a mixture of coursework and an exam. The project entails a short initial report or project proposal of around 1,000 words, a public presentation and a dissertation of 10,000 to 20,000 words. This is assessed by your supervisor and a second marker.

Careers

This degree can lead to research roles in many sectors including working for charities, hospitals and healthcare providers. The skills you will acquire in mathematical modelling can be equally well applied to other fields of study such as understanding climate change or conservation and ecology.

For many students a masters course can also lead to further academic study such as a PhD.

Dedicated careers support

You will receive support from our dedicated Career Zone team, who provide excellent career guidance at all stages of career planning. The Career Zone provides one-on-one support and is home to a wealth of business and industry contacts. Additionally, they host useful training events, workshops and lectures which are designed to further support you in developing your enterprise acumen.
