The School of Mathematics has strong research groups in pure and applied mathematics and accepts a number of students for PhD research degrees each year.
Our Faculty members have a range of interests and are more than happy to discuss possible projects with potential students. On the applied side we have members interested in fluid dynamics; mechanics of solids; geophysical fluid dynamics, and mathematical biology. On the pure side, we have members conducting research in group theory, number theory, combinatorics, model theory, set theory and ergodic theory. For further details, please see the separate pages about our pure and applied research, and the pages for individual faculty members.
Applications and Enquiries
Candidates for graduate study are normally expected to have a British honours degree or equivalent. More precise requirements and any particular conditions for entry may be specified by individual Schools.
International candidates are also required to provide evidence of a good command of English if that is not their first language.
The closing date for postgraduate taught degrees starting in September 2012 is 31 July 2012. After this date, we cannot guarantee that places will still be available. However, some courses may be full before the closing date and so candidates are advised to apply as early as possible.
