Amazing Maths seminars

The Amazing Maths seminars aim to give undergraduate mathematics students a flavour of mathematics research beyond the core curriculum.

Seminar details

The Amazing Maths seminars are held from 3-4pm on Wednesdays. Please contact the organiser Dr Andrea Prinsloo for further details.

These seminars are organised in collaboration with the Maths Society at the University of Surrey.

A full list of Undergraduate Mathematics seminars at the University of Surrey is available at Department of Mathematics seminars.
