About us 

The Department of Mathematics at the University of York is a vibrant part of a worldwide mathematics community, with staff from around 20 nations and students drawn likewise from all over the world. We are housed in James College on the University of York Campus West (the original campus). The most visible aspect of our research is the many seminars, meetings, study groups and informal research discussions happening in the "Topos", our suite of discussion and meeting rooms.

We have around 60 academic staff (including PDRAs and research fellows), 50 PhD students, 50 MSc students and 650 undergraduates. Above all, we offer small group teaching in a friendly atmosphere with options that allow you to study at the frontiers of the discipline. Every student is fully supported, by interactions ranging from academic and pastoral supervision, through problems classes, small-group "seminars" and tutorials, to peer-assisted learning run by our active student Mathematics Society. Our academic staff are leading international researchers across the mathematical spectrum and we boast high employability rates for our graduates once they leave.

Strong interdisciplinary links enable a dynamic and creative environment, both within the University and with our partner organisations worldwide. We cover the full spectrum of mathematical sub-disciplines within our curricula, and whether you choose to study with us at undergraduate or postgraduate level, we are sure that your time here will be life-changing.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
