Advice on how to apply

To be considered for entry to the programme, applicants must hold (or expect to receive) a First Class degree (or equivalent) in Mathematics, Statistics, or a subject with substantial statistical and/or mathematical content. General guidance on completing the online application

Deadline for applications to the MSc in Mathematical Science taught programme is 1 August 2018

There is no fixed closing date for applications for our PhD and MSc by Research programmes. However, in order to be considered for  a funded PhD studentship, PhD candidates must apply before  8 January 2018.

Below are some hints and tips which can help to speed up the application procedure.

Research interests:

It is essential to indicate the areas of research that you are interested in and to name at least one potential supervisor with whom you would like to work. You will be required to write a research statement statement: this is an opportunity for you to tell us what your research interests are and to describe your relevant experience and motivation for postgraduate study.

Academic transcript:

Include a complete list of courses and marks from your university in your application, in an easy to read format (low resolution scanned documents may not be legible). This should be an official document provided by your university.

Letters of reference:

Make sure the people you ask to write your references have upto-date knowledge of your experience. If you are currently studying and have not yet completed your degree, include a referee who can comment on your predicted grade.

Language requirements:

Check the language requirements for the programme to which you are applying. For MSc applicants, these are specified by Profile E, and for PhD applicants it is Profile F; see the links below. If you are required to take a language test, make sure you include the language certificate in your application, or indicate the date when you intend to take the test.

For more details about the application process, see the entry for the Mathematics PhD programme in the University Postgraduate prospectus.
