Conferences and seminars
Postgraduate students are encouraged to participate in the many school research-related activities, and attend appropriate national and international conferences. We also offer a diverse range of research seminars, which you are welcome to attend.
Research students also have access to specialised mathematical training courses such as those provided by the Academy for PhD Training in Statistics (APTS) or the Mathematics Access Grid Conferencing (MAGIC) group who run courses using videoconferencing technology.
Each maths research student has a share of a furnished office with their own desk and personal computer or laptop and may make full use of general school facilities.
The university provides excellent computing facilities, which offer 24-hour access to email, internet,word-processing packages and specialist mathematical software.
The school also has dedicated postgraduate workrooms for both masters and research students that are also accessible 24-hours a day. The computers have electronic links to a high performance computing facility. Students also have free access to cross-campus Wi-Fi.
Postgraduate maths students have access to the University's specialist science library as well as the main University library. They both have excellent access to online journals and databases as well as computer rooms to work in.
The range of research activities in the Mathematical Sciences is extremely broad - from theoretical research in Pure Mathematics to generic, methodological research in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, which is often motivated by important applications. It is also host to the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology. Much of the research undertaken is multidisciplinary and crosses traditional boundaries.
The maths taught masters programmes offered in the school have been carefully designed to reflect our research strengths and are being constantly informed and updated by the work taking place in our research groups.
