Entry requirements

To be eligible to apply for an MPhil or PhD programmes, applicants should normally have, or expect to obtain, at least an upper second class honours degree in a discipline appropriate to their intended area of research. Substantial prior research experience may, in some instances, be acceptable in place of a first degree qualification. If you are not sure whether this might apply to you, our Graduate School will be able to advise you.

Months of entry

January, September, May

Course content

Studying for an MPhil or a PhD is very much an individual activity, and research topics vary widely, according to personal interests. As one of our students, we will help to nurture your interests and develop skills and insights essential to your future progress.

To assist you, we offer access to modern, well-equipped laboratories and library facilities, and are also able to support prospective students in developing their research proposals.

Applications are welcomed from able mathematicians who are willing to work hard within their chosen research project. We are able to supervise projects that have either a theoretical or a practical focus that employ computational methods or analysis, and that may involve mathematical modelling, or interdisciplinary work in the biosciences.
