Students Staff

Study with us

We have an international reputation in many areas such as semi-group theory, optimisation, probability, applied statistics, bioinformatics and mathematical biology. Our staff are strongly committed to research and to the promotion of graduate activities.

Taught courses

We offer a variety of taught Masters courses which provide you with up-to-date training in your area of study. We have strong links with Essex Business School, the Department of Economics, and the Schools of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering and Biological Sciences. This enables us to offer some unique courses.

Research study

We offer a lively and stimulating environment in which to carry out your postgraduate research. Our academic staff are working on projects at the cutting edge of their fields.

Opportunities to present your research

We run a seminar series throughout the year. As a research student we will encourage you to contribute when your work is at an advanced stage. This opportunity gives you invaluable practice that will help when you come to present at conferences.

Small and friendly department

We are a small and friendly department with a strong community feel. We take great pride in our excellent staff-student relations and offer an open-door policy, which means that members of academic staff will do their best to see you if they are available in their office.
