Welcome to Mathematics in Cambridge

From Newton and earlier to the present day, Cambridge Mathematicians have led the world.

We offer outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, and exceptional PhD programmes.

We carry out research of world class excellence spanning topics in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (at DPMMS), and Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (at DAMTP).

Our innovative education programmes and outreach events support teachers and school students worldwide, and share the excitement of the subject with the public.

Cambridge snapshots: Tamara Grossmann

Tamara Grossmann, final year PhD student at the Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information, tells us about her work in image analysis, a typical day as a researcher, and her role in encouraging more women and non-binary people into the field.

The mathematical forces that fought COVID-19

While the COVID-19 pandemic separated us physically, it also caused parts of our communities to pull together to meet the challenge. One group of people who have done this particularly well are mathematicians — with members of the Mathematics Faculty playing a leading role.

We collaborate and consult with business, industry, governments, NGOs, charities, and fellow teachers and academics. We recruit worldwide. We value our alumnae and alumni.
