Course summary

The Department of Mathematics at York offers the opportunity to study for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), as well as the degree of Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Mathematics, in a thriving research environment. If you would like to be considered for a place on one of our research degrees (PhD, PhD (with Foundation Phase), MPhil or MSc by Research), please apply online. We cannot accept a CV or any other documentation in place of a formal application.

The Department of Mathematics supports the principles laid out in the London Mathematical Society Good Practice Scheme. We value diversity and aim to create an inclusive community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect regardless of individual characteristics such as age, gender, disability, religion or ethnicity.

The Department is firmly committed to women's progression in mathematics and holds the Bronze Award of the Athena SWAN programme for women in science. Several of our academic and research staff are women, along with about 40% of our students. Our female graduates work in fields as diverse as medical statistics, defence and the financial industry, and for employers such as BAE Systems and Microsoft. York is a great place for a woman to study and graduate in mathematics.

The PhD is a research degree by thesis. The normal period of enrolment is three years. After that, students may have an additional period of up to 12 months in which to complete and submit their thesis. Extensions beyond this may only be granted in exceptional circumstances.

The first two terms of study normally include the equivalent of six 10-hour graduate level courses taken from the programme of study provided by the EPSRC-funded MAGIC consortium graduate school (lectures by video link between 20 UK mathematics departments).
