Our research expertise is in algebra, analysis, probability, statistical methodology, and medical and social statistics. Students will have a formal weekly meeting with their supervisor, supplemented by more frequent, informal contact. Our postgraduate instruction is through either intense lectures (on- or off-campus) under the APTS scheme (Statistics), or term-length courses delivered by video-link, under the MAGIC scheme (Pure Mathematics). Any remaining skills gaps will be covered through additional lectures or directed reading. Students are encouraged to participate in appropriate seminars which provide ideal opportunity to gain valuable experience of communicating ideas to an audience while also receiving feedback; they also help to set future research directions.
Upper 2nd Class Honours degree, or its equivalent, in mathematics, statistics, or a combination of the two. IELTS: 6.5 or equivalent.
Assessment is via original research and thesis.
Funding may be available from RCUK (Research Councils UK).
