Mathematics PhD - 2018 Entry

Entry Year
2018

Duration
Full time 36 Month(s)

Course Overview

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 an ideal opportunity to gain valuable experience of communicating ideas to an audience while also receiving feedback; they also help to set future research directions.

Students will have their own laptop, and are generously supported to attend and present work at conferences.

    The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.

    If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.

    What are tuition fees for?

    Studying at a UK University means that you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition, which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, assessment and graduation.

    The fee that you will be charged depends on whether you are considered to be a UK, EU or overseas student. Visiting students will be charged a pro-rata fee for periods of study less than a year.

    Our annual tuition fee is set for a 12 month session, which usually runs from October to September the following year.

    How does Lancaster set overseas tuition fees?

    Overseas fees, alongside all other sources of income, allow the University to maintain its abilities across the range of activities and services. Each year the University's Finance Committee consider recommendations for increases to fees proposed for all categories of student and this takes into account a range of factors including projected cost inflation for the University, comparisons against other high-quality institutions and external financial factors such as projected exchange rate movements.

    What support is available towards tuition fees?

    Lancaster University's priority is to support every student in making the most of their education. Many of our students each year will be entitled to bursaries or scholarships to help with the cost of fees and/or living expenses. You can find out more about financial support, studentships, and awards for postgraduate study on our website.
