Coronavirus (COVID-19) update - Department of Mathematics

My colleagues and I continue to deliver a blend of in-person and online teaching sessions, with the flexibility to accommodate everyone's situation and the changing course of the pandemic. On all programmes, we aim to retain our friendly atmosphere, personal contact and small-group teaching, whether or not you are here in person.

Now, through December and January, we are all working to prepare teaching materials for the new year, while our students are working equally hard to prepare for their January exams. I wish everyone the best possible vacation under these difficult circumstances.

Professor Niall MacKay, Head of Department, December 4, 2020
