Postgraduate Study in Mathematics



Research students are expected to return into residence in Cambridge from the start of Michaelmas Term 2021, unless there are exceptional reasons why this is not possible or they have permission to work away/intermit.  The University has published guidance on exceptional reasons on the following website:
