Enjoying your degree in maths? 

Considering continuing on to further study? 

Then why not join us for our annual ‘Opportunities for the Future’ event, taking place on Wednesday 6th November 2019.  

A PhD in mathematics can offer you independence, challenging problems and an inspiring job, as well as the chance to travel and the opportunity to make a difference. 

This event gives all students an opportunity to speak to current PhD students at Bristol and hear talks from a range of professionals who all have a doctorate in a maths based subject.  

You will not only gain information on the PhD experience itself, but find out more about where a PhD in mathematics can take you.
