Information for Prospective Students
The number theory group is large and diverse, and always keen to attract new postgraduate students. In addition to the usual number theory seminars that are organised each week of term, we organise a weekly junior number theory seminar. The emphasis on the latter is a low pressure environment in which students take turns to give talks.
Although it is not essential, potential applicants are advised to make informal email contact with their prospective supervisor(s) before making their application. In particular, it may turn out that some faculty members are unable to take on further students, or are not interested in particular areas of study.
The following is a list of members of the department who may be willing to take on new graduate students.
