The MRes can be used as the first phase of our fast track PhD programme, in which the MRes thesis is extended over a further period of two years into a PhD thesis.
The MRes is an ideal preparation for entry into the PhD programme at Birmingham or at any other UK university. This is an excellent option for well-qualified mathematics students who do not have all the necessary mathematical background to start immediately on a PhD in their area of choice.
You will be assigned a project supervisor who will act as director and mentor in the preparation of the MRes thesis. This gives each student the opportunity to work one-to-one with mathematicians who are international experts in their fields.
In addition to the assessed elements of the course, students are expected to play a full part in the research life of the School. The School has an active seminar programme, and organises international conferences in all areas of mathematics.
This Pure Mathematics programme from University of Birmingham gives comprehensive training in mathematics and areas appropriate to professional development and research foundations. The MRes is an ideal preparation for entry into the PhD programme at Birmingham. In fact, the MRes programme can be used as the first phase of our 'Fast-track' PhD programme.
A regular programme of seminars and conferences takes place within the School in a wide range of subjects. Currently thriving at Birmingham are the following research groups:
- Applied Mathematics: applied analysis, mathematical biology, fluid mechanics, hydrogen energy, fuel cells and their applications, numerical analysis and scientific computation
- Pure Mathematics: algebra, analysis, combinatorics and logic
- Theoretical and Computational Optimization: mathematical theory and methods applicable to managerial decision-making
- Statistics: time series analysis, multivariate statistics, kernel and wavelet based nonparametric smoothing methods, econometrics and medical statistics
