Considering further study?

Your degree will allow you to continue your studies to the level of Masters or PhD. Your postgraduate options are not only limited to mathematics and statistics - many postgraduate courses require a good undergraduate degree result in any subject in order to study them. Additionally, if you initially apply for one of our three year BSc degrees and decide to transfer to your subject’s four-year MSci course, you will have the opportunity to do so.

Lancaster University’s postgraduate courses are designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to achieve your career aspirations, as well as broadening and deepening your knowledge of your chosen subject. Many of our courses include practical and professional training as well as world-class academic teaching, giving you the skills and experience that employers look for.

PhD Study

Studying a PhD at Lancaster will give you the tools you need in order to pursue a career in research allowing you to pursue research at the leading edge of your subject. You will pursue a specific area of original research for three or four years, supervised by a leading academic in the field. Although many PhD graduates go on to pursue careers in academia, you may also pursue a career in commercial research, and your specialist knowledge will be desirable to employers within areas such as finance and business.

Our Department has a wide range of PhDs available – you should arrange to discuss your research proposals with the relevant academics.
