Course content

As a researcher in the School of Mathematics and Physics, students can benefit from specialist computational facilities, training programmes to enhance research skills, and support from dedicated academic supervisors.

Students are supported and encouraged to submit papers to international scientific journals, present findings at conferences, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.

Research in the School follows two distinct strands: computational physics/applied mathematics and pure mathematics. Research in applied mathematics is focused on the development of numerical methods and algorithms for solving various equations found in materials science, specifically in the field of nanomaterials. This includes advanced parallelisation and adaptation of the methods for modern supercomputers.

Fees and funding

For eligible students, there are more ways than ever before to fund your postgraduate study, whether you want to do a taught or research course. For those wishing to undertake a Master's course, you can apply for a loan as a contribution towards the course and living costs. Loans are also available to those who wish to undertake doctoral study. The University offers a number of scholarships and funded studentships for those interested in postgraduate study.
