Summer Research Programmes


We encourage all our students to pursue a summer research experience working as a mathematician during the summer holidays.

There are opportunities to work within the CMS on projects that develop ideas from the lectures that you have attended, and also to work on mathematical projects with supervisors in other departments and labs within the university. We would strongly urge you to also consider looking beyond the Faculty of Mathematics and the university and explore projects available in industry; experience the different ways the outside world uses mathematics and discover what exciting possibilities exist for mathematicians outside of academia.
