Workshops and events
Our regular workshops cover all the key mathematical topics needed by students with a mathematical element to their course. In addition, we also have one-off events in response to student need. There is also some information here about other events that you might be interested in.
All welcome - no need to book. Attendance counts towards the training component of the RED Award.
All workshops run 14:00-15:00 in URS 2s12.
