Opportunities for PhD research are available in a wide range of topics in Financial Mathematics. For some of the available areas of possible PhD or M.Phil research see the current Financial Mathematics research page . For more details about the specific projects, please contact the relevant individual members of staff or get in touch with the Financial Mathematics Postgraduate Admissions Tutor .
Students may enter our graduate programme in Mathematical Finance by initially taking our taught M.Sc. course over 1 year. This, subject to satisfactory progress, can lead to admission to the PhD programme.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:
UK/EU students (per annum): £4,260
International students (per annum): £22,000
UK/EU students (per annum): £2,130
International students (per annum): £11,000
Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
Together with EPSRC and other national funding sources, the School currently provides financial support to some 60 postgraduate students every year (approximately 15 new students per year). EPSRC DTA research studentships are available in all areas for UK and EU students. Students who are normally resident in the EU but not in the UK are eligible for EPSRC PhD studentships, but the awards in such cases currently cover only the course fees, not maintenance stipends.
In addition, about eight School scholarships are also available each year to PhD students. PhD students may also have the opportunity to help in teaching undergraduate examples classes, for which they are paid. For details of all available awards, please visit the School's website .
