Course content

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.
