Studying Mathematics at postgraduate level gives you a chance to begin your own research, develop your own creativity and be part of a long tradition of people investigating analytic, geometric and algebraic ideas.
You would be joining a vibrant research community of almost 100 postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers and academic staff. You have the opportunity to engage with a very wide range of research topics within a well-established system of support and training, with a high level of contact between staff and research students.
A very active research seminar programme further enhances the Mathematics research experience.
The School has a strong reputation for world-class research as indicated by our results in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF). Postgraduate students develop analytical, communication and research skills. Developing computational skills and applying them to mathematical problems forms a significant part of the postgraduate training in the School.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 rated 72% of the School's research output as International Quality or above. The School is in the top 25 in the UK when considered on weighted GPA.
The Mathematics Group also has an excellent track record of winning research grants from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Royal Society, the EU, the London Mathematical Society and the Leverhulme Trust.
