The Course

Pure Mathematics at Doctoral level offers the opportunity investigate the purely abstract, theoretical areas of mathematical discovery at the highest level.

The School of Mathematics and Physics offers the opportunity to work alongside specialists within the field in a vibrant community,

sharing ideas and experiences.

Postgraduate research in pure mathematics covers the areas of lie algebras and group theory. Training is provided through individual supervision of research and by advanced seminars. As a research student, you can benefit from a comprehensive programme of training designed to develop your research skills and methodologies.

A team of academics will offer advice and support on publishing your work in international journals and presenting at global conferences. You may also have an opportunity to engage in international collaborations during your study.

How You Study

You can benefit from specialist computational facilities, training programmes to enhance your research skills and support from dedicated academic supervisors. You will be supported and encouraged to submit papers to international scientific journals, present your findings at conferences and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

A PhD is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic.

Career and Personal Development

Pure Mathematics students have the opportunity to develop the problem solving skills that may lead to careers in academia, research or industry.
