Mathematics

Mathematics is essential for understanding almost every area of modern life. Its influence spans finance, medical science, digital communications and even weather forecasting.

Our courses cover pure and applied topics, and give you a vital insight into mathematical applications that are crucial to social, industrial and technological development.

Our leading research in both pure and applied mathematics – ranging from fields, strings and geometry to modelling in biological and social sciences - informs our teaching.

We also have close connections with major organisations, opening the door to a variety of careers, from finance and engineering to pharmacology and healthcare.

100 per cent of our postgraduate students go on to employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes survey 2022, HESA).

Studentships

PhD studentships in mathematics

Funding information:
Each PhD studentship is fully-funded, including fees and a tax-free stipend, at UKRI studentship rates covered for the duration of 3 to 4 years for UK candidates. International candidates are welcome to apply but will need to cover the difference between the UK and overseas fees.
