Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: Department of Mathematics
My colleagues and I have been very disappointed not to have been able to see more of our students in person recently, and are working towards a return to on-campus teaching this autumn. We are especially looking forward to recreating the small-group seminars, friendly atmosphere and positive engagement with mathematics that we all so enjoy. We will of course also be maintaining our current online teaching materials, and will be happy to offer online support teaching for anyone unable to study in York due to the pandemic.
With best wishes,
Professor Niall MacKay, Head of Department, June 24th 2021
