Fridays@2 are a series of weekly seminars run during term time. The programme is designed specifically for undergraduate and masters students. The sessions are designed to help students to develop useful skills, to explore career possibilities, and to put their mathematics courses into a broader context. The sessions will run every Friday during term time at 14:00-15:00 in L1, followed by tea and biscuits in the South Mezzanine.

The Fridays@2 timetable can be found here.

The slides, recordings or handouts for each session will be posted below after each session.
