Postgraduate Courses in Mathematics, Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences offers a lively environment for any student wishing to pursue advanced studies in mathematics. We have approximately 40 faculty members across four disciplines: Mathematics, Statistics, Applied Mathematics, and Bioinformatics. 

We are well recognised within NUI Galway as a very student-friendly School. Several of our members have been formally recognised for their teaching excellence.

Mathematics, Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics are areas of large jobs growth.  Our courses provide graduates with a highly marketable and transferable set of skills as well as specialist knowledge. Graduates will be well placed to seek employment in a wide range of industries including financial, biotechnology, pharmaceutical R&D, clinical healthcare, academic and research institutes, semi-state bodies and will also have the opportunity to pursue PhD studies.

What Our Students Say

Dr. Terri

Dr. Terri McVeigh |   Consultant Clinical Geneticist at The Royal Marsden Hospital

I work both as a doctor in Clinical Genetics, and also as a cancer researcher. The genomics data analysis module was enormously beneficial to me from both clinical and academic perspectives. The material used in the end-of-module assignment could be derived from our own work or from a dataset of our interest, meaning that we could immediately see real-life applications of our new skills and knowledge base. I would highly recommend this module, and indeed this MSc to anybody with a clinical or research interest in genomics.
