Join a department with a long and established track record of world-leading mathematics research. We offer an exceptional learning environment in which to work on your PhD and grow as a researcher.
The University allocates around 150 entry awards each year in PhD studentships and bursaries, so there are many ways to access PhD funding.
You'll receive support from our Department as well as the Graduate School, which is the University of Reading's hub for all doctoral activity.
You'll join a large, inclusive community, and have opportunities to present your research in workshops and at conferences.
Our academics have a wide range of expertise across the breadth of pure and applied mathematics, which they bring to their doctoral supervision.
98% of our research is world leading or internationally excellent and 100% of our research impact has been classed ‘outstanding’ or ‘very considerable’ (Research Excellence Framework 2021, combining 4* and 3* submissions – Mathematical Sciences).
