The Department of Mathematics carries out research across a broad range of modern and traditional mathematics and we have a high level of engagement in interdisciplinary research and with industry. Our Mathematics MPhil programme enables you to study an area of mathematics that interests you. As a MPhil student you will be assigned to a supervisory team. The team comprises of a main supervisor, at least one co-supervisor, and an advisor. The aim of the programme is to turn you into a competent independent researcher and the thesis you will write at the end of your programme should evidence this fact.
The Department of Mathematics has an outstanding research reputation. The research facilities include one of the finest libraries in the country, the John Rylands University Library. This library has recently made a very large commitment of resources to providing comprehensive online facilities for the free use of the University's research community. Postgraduate students in the Department benefit from direct access to all the Library electronic resources from their offices.
Many research seminars are held in the Department on a weekly basis and allow staff and research students to stay in touch with the latest developments in their fields. The Department is one of the lead partners in the MAGIC project and research students can attend any of the postgraduate courses offered by the MAGIC consortium
Opportunities for Postgraduate research are available in a wide range of topics in Mathematics. For more information please see the relevant PhD programme pages
To be announced.
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.
