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),

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).

Students' progress is monitored and supported by a Thesis Advisory Panel, usually consisting of a minimum of three academic members of staff, including supervisor(s). Thesis Advisory Panels for full-time students usually meet twice a year (usually once a year for part-time students). Further information on the role of Thesis Advisory Panels and on formal reviews of progress can be found in the Policy on Research Degrees.
