To offer knowledge and expertise for a career in the academic world, or to pursue a variety of other opportunities in which a strong mathematical background is important. Past students are on the staff of universities in the UK and abroad, and senior statisticians and managers in industry and business.
The PhD programme leads the student, through taught courses and individual project supervision, to the frontier of an area of mathematics, with the aim of creating a piece of original research, written up in the doctoral thesis. In the process, the student acquires essential research, problem-solving and communication skills.
- Lively research environment, extensive seminar programme
- Conference and workshop support, including annual Welsh Mathematics Colloquium
- Optional participation in undergraduate teaching, including HEA accreditation

In their first and second year of study, research students follow a programme of lectures and reading courses agreed with their supervisors. These include formal assessment.
Moreover, research students benefit from a carefully developed graduate program including computational, presentational and subject-specific skills.
Students will also write a substantial end-of-year report and give a seminar in the department.
Research students in their first year(s) follow an agreed programme of study to introduce them to research skills and methods and to advance their knowledge in their chosen field.
Available research areas
- Analysis and Differential Equations
- Applied Mathematics
- Mathematical Physics
- Number Theory
- Operational Research
The individual research groups run weekly seminars with guest speakers, and postgraduate research students regularly attend the seminar in their research area, and are encouraged to profit from talks in other areas, too. The School organises about three mathematics colloquia with distinguished guest speakers per term.
Moreover, Cardiff is the venue for a number of international workshops and conferences organised by members of the School of Mathematics, thus giving postgraduate students a welcome opportunity to learn about world-leading current research. They are also encouraged to take part and present their results at major conferences in the UK and abroad.
At the annual Welsh Mathematics Colloquium at Gregynog, postgraduate students can showcase their work in the group of Welsh Mathematics departments.
A broad variety of careers in academia or industry.
