Welcome to one of the largest and most successful Schools of Mathematics based in one of the top research universities in the UK. We welcome students here at both undergraduate and postgraduate level from all over the world to a thriving, challenging, but supportive environment. The interests of our research staff span pure and applied mathematics, statistics and operational research, which allows us to offer one of the widest portfolio of study topics available in the UK.
The diversity of research interests in the School is reflected in the wide range of undergraduate Honours Degree programmes that we offer, from vocationally related degrees, such as Mathematics with Actuarial Studies and Mathematics with Computer Science, to Single Honours Mathematics and Master of Mathematics. All our undergraduate degree programmes are built around a flexible unit structure which allows students scope to follow their own interests and career aspirations, including, for example, a year of study abroad. The School has a long-standing high reputation for the quality and innovation of its teaching, as refelected by its extremely high post-graduation employment rates.
The Graduate School in Mathematics offers three MSc courses in Medical Statistics and Operational Research, and programmes of research and training leading to the degree of PhD. These degree programmes are supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Medical Research Council and by company sponsorship. As well as an induction programme for new Research Students designed to integrate them into the research and social life of the school, we run an extensive training programme designed to equip our students with advanced techniques at the forefront of research. All four of our research groups are rated as internationally excellent in the UK Research Assessment Exercise. The research environment is enhanced by our collaborative interdisciplinary approach and our diverse seminar and visitor programmes.
