Postgraduate research degrees

The School of Mathematical Sciences welcomes applications to study for the degrees PhD and MPhil. Research degrees can be taken either full time or part time.

The School has vibrant research environment with several full-time and part-time research students. Our postgraduate students participate in the School research seminar series, contribute to the mathematical sciences research group, interact closely with each other, researchers in the School and externally, and support each other throughout their studies. Many of our students are supported by research grants and are working on multi-disciplinary projects.
