How to apply 

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 here: apply online.

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 deadlines which are shortly before each of our scholarship meetings.

Application Deadlines

12 noon UK time (midday) on: 

  • 1st Friday of December - December 6th, 2019
  • Last day of January - January 31st, 2020
  • 2nd Friday of March - March 13th, 2020

 While applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible, the bulk of scholarships will not be allocated until after the  January deadline. Later  applications may be considered for a scholarship,  should funding become available.

We encourage applicants to make contact with individual members of staff to find out further information about particular research areas.

When completing your application, please refer to the University's Postgraduate Prospectus  when necessary.
