# Study

Probability is a beautiful mathematical subject in its own right. Students who are interested in diverse subjects such as statistics, statistical mechanics, mathematical biology, mathematical finance, analysis, discrete mathematics, optimisation…. are also likely to benefit from taking subjects in probability.

*The following U. Melbourne subjects are strongly recommended for students who are interested in gaining expertise in probability:*
