Maths at Bristol

Our world-leading research is driven by a thirst for discovery which invigorates our teaching. Our international staff inspire each other and our students.


In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, our world-leading research was ranked No. 4 for impact, No. 5 overall in the Times Higher Education rankings.

As a PhD student I feel I am fully supported by my department. I would encourage anyone interested in maths to do a postgraduate degree if they have the opportunity.
