Overview

The Graduate Certificate in Mathematics is a three-subject course. The flexible course structure allows for study programs designed to suit different university graduates who require a mathematical foundation for further studies.

The course is recommended for those with insufficient mathematics in their bachelor's degree who wish to meet the admission requirements of the Mathematical and Statistical Modelling major in the Master of Science (C04241) or Master of Mathematics and Quantitative Finance (C04419).

Course aims

The course aims to provide university graduates with access to training and retraining in mathematics and statistics with the aim to allow students to focus on particular mathematical topics rather than on broader areas of mathematics.

Career options

Career options include web analyst, consumer analytics, data scientist, database development, marketing research, risk analytics, web conversion optimisation, programming, computational modelling, scheduling and logistics, and statistical analysis.

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed a UTS recognised bachelor's degree, or an equivalent or higher qualification, or submitted other evidence of general and professional qualifications that demonstrates potential to pursue graduate studies.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.5 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 550-583 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 79-93 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 58-64; or CAE: 176-184.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Recognition of prior learning

No exemptions are granted as recognition of prior learning.

Course duration and attendance

An applicant may enrol in this course on a part-time basis. As a guide, minimum part-time attendance is one year of study. The possibility of full-time study and the duration of the course depend on the subjects chosen and their availability. Applicants should be aware that subjects may require attendance at daytime classes. The UTS Timetable Planner enables current and future UTS students to view subject timetables.

Course structure

Students are required to complete 24 credit points.
