The Department of Mathematics is home to 35 academics and postdoctoral researchers as well as 25 postgraduate students. 

Our research groups in nonlinear mathematics and statistics are widely recognised.


We run a lively PhD programme, we also provide a collection of varied Mathematics Masters courses (MSc) which include a range of taught modules, followed by an extended research project supervised by a member of the Department.

We offer a range of undergraduate BSc and MMath courses in Mathematics in an environment where teaching and research are well integrated.

Students on these programmes have various opportunities to explore the life of a professional mathematician, by participating in the optional Professional Training Year, or by taking part in one of the summer projects for undergraduate students; providing them with experience in a working environment.

Research Excellence Framework

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), 75 per cent of our research was rated world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of originality, significance, and rigour. Members of the Department collaborate extensively with mathematicians and scientists worldwide and play leading roles in the organisation of international conferences, workshops and networks.
