The study of mathematics and statistics has never been more important or more highly valued than it is today. Mathematics and statistics provide powerful tools to address some truly fundamental questions about existence, the universe and constructs, both natural and made-made. Postgraduate courses in the School of Mathematics and Statistics will place you in the centre of leading mathematical research, learning from some of the foremost mathematical minds of our time.

Explore our postgraduate courses and customise your learning to suit your interests.

2023 Postgraduate Courses

  • Please note: Honours students must seek approval from their supervisor for course selection prior to enrolment.
