# Third-year opportunities in Mathematics and Statistics

Outstanding students majoring in Mathematics and Statistics, Computational Biology, Data Science or Mathematical Physics or completing a Diploma in Mathematical Sciences may be eligible to undertake an **undergraduate research project** through the Faculty of Science's general subject SCIE30001.

These students may also be eligible to take one MAST-coded masters-level subject during their undergraduate degree through the **Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Extension Program**. This subject may then be credited towards a subsequent Master of Science in Mathematics and Statistics, Computational Biology or Data Science.

For more information about **undergraduate research projects** or our **graduate extension program**, including eligibility criteria, please look at Third-year opportunities on MS Prime. If you have any questions, please contact Lawrence Reeves.

In addition, there is also the Mathematics and Statistics **Vacation Scholarship** program that allows second- and third-year students to undertake a paid undergraduate research project during the summer semester.
