In your first year you will follow an agreed programme of study to introduce you to research skills and methods and advance your knowledge in your chosen field. This includes a broad choice of postgraduate courses provided through the national collaborative networks
We host regular seminars in all of our subject areas with renowned speakers, and also run the Cardiff Mathematics Colloquia and the annual Welsh Mathematics Colloquium, all of which provide insight into cutting-edge research.
The principle areas in which we offer supervision towards the research degrees of MPhil and PhD are pure mathematics, applied mathematics, operational research, and probability and statistics.
