The aim of the Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate in Mathematical Sciences is to give students the opportunity to gain advanced expertise and knowledge in mathematical sciences. These qualifications will be of particular interest to professionals, such as secondary school teachers, who wish to update their skills in current technologies and applications of mathematical sciences relevant to their various professional contexts. These qualifications will also allow students who have a degree in another discipline, with a minor or similar in mathematics, to extend their skills and knowledge in mathematical sciences.
