Research students are assigned a PhD supervisor who has closely related mathematical interests, and with whom they agree on a programme of study and research. That programme includes advanced courses provided by the London Taught Course Centre (LTCC), which is a joint initiative of several London Colleges. The School provides opportunities for acquiring skills through short courses such as Mathematical Writing and students will also have the opportunity to gain experience in teaching.
Funding, usually for a period of 3.5 years, is available on an annual basis from both EPSRC and from Queen Mary, designed to cover the fees and living expenses. See here for current PhD studentship offers and a list of sample PhD projects.
