Pure Mathematics

Our department is able to offer supervision as several members of staff have interests in this area, including: Semigroup theory; group theory (especially presentations) and several aspects of discrete mathematics; for e.g. graph theory. Students work under the supervision of 1 or more of these members of staff. The PhD typically involves wide reading round the subject area in the students' 1st year, then gradually developing original results over their 2nd and 3rd years before writing them up in a coherent fashion.

Entry requirements

Master's degree, or equivalent, in relevant subject area; IELTS 6.0.

Assessment methods

Assessment methods include dissertation.

Sponsorship information

Research councils and some University of Essex studentships available.
