Postgraduate Study in Mathematics

The Faculty Postgraduate Office provides a shared administrative service for both DAMTP and DPMMS.  The staff of the Postgraduate Office work with academic officers, as well as administrative colleagues across the University, to support the delivery of the Faculty's masters and doctoral level programmes. This support spans all aspects of postgraduate administration from recruitment and admissions through to examination and final award of the degree.

The Postgraduate Office is located in C0.15, just by the Pavilion C common room. 

Each postgraduate level programme has a lead contact within the office as follows:

PhD in Mathematical Analysis (CCA - EPSRC CDT) Tessa Blackman 37921
PhD in Mathematics of Information (CMI) Tessa Blackman 37921
PhD in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) Femke Cole 37965
