About us

We provide an innovative and stimulating environment for both studying and researching in the mathematical sciences.

Our excellent reputation attracts over 220 students from around the world every year, including:

Research and teaching

Our research and teaching is led by a dedicated team of academic staff with support from our postdoctoral tutors.

Teaching is research led, reflecting the focus of the School. Students are taught by internationally recognised scholars who are shaping the future of their respective fields.


Our collaborations with international partners help our research achieve global impact and create industrial opportunities for our students.

In the REF 2014 research assessment exercise all our research was rated as 'outstanding' or 'very considerable' for its impact in terms of its reach and significance. 100% of our research output was rated at least internationally recognised, with 90% ranked internationally excellent or world-leading.

Maths Support

We offer a drop-in service where students with any mathematical question can get help either one-to-one or in a small group. The service is available to all Cardiff University students. It is used by Mathematics students and students from other disciplines with mathematical queries.
