About us

The Department of Mathematics is a lively and friendly place with an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research.

Academic staff are active in pioneering research which is making an impressive impact on the world stage. This strong research culture influences our curriculum, helping students to keep in touch with the latest developments in the field. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) the department was ranked second in the UK for research impact.

The department has around 20 academic members of staff who teach a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses and do research in a number of areas in pure, applied and applicable mathematics, probability and statistics, quantum dynamics and information security.

We provide a supportive learning environment and staff are always ready to give help and advice, with a personal adviser system and generous office hours.

94% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE, 2018).

We value diversity and promote equality of opportunity for all. Check out the webpage of our Equality and Diversity Committee.

We can be found in the Bedford building and at the McCrea Building on the Egham Campus. For directions, and a downloadable map, see here.
