Summary on Grant Application Form
The vision for this Centre stems directly from the international-review finding that, while the UK PhD standard remains high, recent changes in content of undergraduate degrees along with pressure for PhD completion result in reduced opportunity for PhD candidates to study mathematical sciences outside the immediate areas of their research projects. Modular lecture courses and short intensive courses are proposed. with an emphasis on personal contact, introducing students to an exciting wide range of topics in pure and applied mathematics and statistics, and striking a balance between classical results and recent developments.
