Mathematics and statistics requirements
If you have not studied mathematics and statistics to at least 100 level, we recommend you get in touch as early as possible. You will likely be required to take some preparatory classes.  We can suggest remedial work, and carefully managed catch-up work in the early stages will help ease the pain

Workload

For students working fulltime we recommend one paper at a time, at least initially -- once you are used to the workload you can consider increasing that to two a trimester, but many students find one paper at a time an appropriate workload. We advise most fulltime students to enrol in at least one weekly lecture paper to better spread your workload.
