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 about 22 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.

98% of our students said that they were satisfied overall in the National Student Survey (NSS 2017).


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