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.
