About

The The Mathematical Modelling course from The Graduate School at the University of Limerick will provide training in techniques of applied mathematics, and will focus largely on mathematical models of real world processes, their formulation in terms of differential equations, and methods of solutions, both numerical and analytical, of the models. A focus of the course will be an emphasis on practical problems which arise in industry, commerce, medicine, as well as the environmental and life sciences. In particular, there will be a close alliance between the course and research problems in industrial applied mathematics, which is a principal research strand underpinning MACSI research.

Objectives

To provide a first year of intensive taught courses as part of a structured graduate programme for MACSI postgraduates and to enable graduates of engineering and other disciplines to redirect their training towards mathematical modelling.

Careers

Financial services including accounting, international banking, lending analysis and investment analysis; information and communication technologies; engineering industries (e.g. environmental, electronics, aerospace and automobile); scientific research (e.g. medical, social, economic, engineering, computing, industrial, fisheries, biological and mathematical); data analysis including market research and demographics; manufacturing (including production planning and quality control), research and development, especially in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries; mathematics education (teaching and lecturing).

Programme Structure

Semester 1
  • Advanced Methods I
  • Scientific Computation
  • Fundamentals of Continuum Mechanics
  • Applied Analysis
  • Mathematics of Natural Phenomena
Semester 2
  • Advanced Methods II
  • Mathematical Geoscience
  • Mathematical Biology and Physiology

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score: 6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score (Grade A): 200

    The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.

    Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

  • Minimum required score: 550

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score: 80

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

The minimum entry requirement is a 2:2 undergraduate degree (Level 8 - National Qualifications Authority of Ireland) (or equivalent) in mathematics, or any related numerate discipline. In addition, a number of scholarships will be available to suitably qualified candidates. Preference may be given to early applicants.

English Language Requirements

As all international students are required to possess sufficient language skills to attend lectures and sit examinations at the University of Limerick, students should be competent to communicate through the medium of English prior to their arrival.

Students must have a minimum score of 550 (paper based) or 213 (computer based) 80 (internet based) in TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or an IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score in the range of 6.5-7 and not less than 6.0 in any one component.

What to Include with your Application
  • Qualification transcripts and certificates
  • English language qualification if English is not your first language
  • Certified English translations of your transcripts/certificates where the originals are in a language other than English.
  • A copy of your birth certificate (long document)

Tuition Fee Per Year

  • EUR 12500 International
  • EUR 5700 EU/EEA

Funding

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
