Our research expertise is in algebra, analysis, probability, statistical methodology, and medical and social statistics.
Students have a formal weekly meeting with their supervisor, supplemented by more frequent, informal contact. 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). Remaining skills gaps will be covered through additional lectures or directed reading. Students are encouraged to participate in appropriate seminars which provide ideal opportunity to gain valuable experience of communicating ideas to an audience while also receiving feedback; they also help to set future research directions.
You will have your own laptop, and are generously supported to attend and present work at conferences.
