The School of Mathematics is keen to attract students to engage in research mathematics and invite applications to our PhD programme. Our experience in the school is that a diverse academic community stimulates creative ideas and approaches to solutions to problems.
Anyone who is passionate about mathematics will find our community to be a safe and welcoming space. We particularly welcome applications from under represented communities. To be accepted onto the programme students must be enthusiastic about continuing to study mathematics and normally have a mathematically-based undergraduate degree equivalent to a UK upper-second or first class MSci degree.
To apply to be a postgraduate mathematics student at Birmingham (either MRes or PhD) you should complete an on-line application. Instruction on how to do this and about the information which is required can be found there.
Please note that being offered a place on the PhD programme is necessary to be considered for a PhD scholarship. We will consider all successful applicants to the PhD programme for a scholarship but applicants should be aware of the following deadline which is shortly before each of our scholarship meetings.
- 23:59, 21st January, 2022.
- 23:59, 4th March, 2022.
We encourage applicants to make contact with individual members of staff to find out further information about particular research areas.
