Course summary

About us

Academic staff in the Department of Mathematics carry out pioneering research which is making an impressive impact on the world stage. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) the department was ranked second in the UK for research impact.

The department has 20 staff performing research in a number of areas of pure, applied and applicable mathematics, probability and statistics, and information security.

The main research interests in the department can be grouped into the following areas

  • Algebra
  • Discrete Mathematics and its Applications
  • Number Theory
  • Quantum Dynamics
  • Statistics and Probability.

Assessment

Once the research has been successfully completed the student must write and submit a final report in the form of a PhD research thesis. This will be evaluated by at least two experts and the student will be invited to attend an oral examination where they must satisfactorily defend their thesis.

Your future career

Our PhD students have a high employability rate. Our Mathematics PhD students either continue on the academic route by taking up Post-Doctoral research positions at other institutions or move, for example, into the Financial Sector. Many of the skills acquired by Mathematics PhD students are in demand outside of Academia.
