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 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, study groups, research lectures and informal meetings happening in the "Topos", our suite of discussion and seminar rooms.

We have around 50 academic staff, many of whom are world leaders in their specialities, together with 10-15 research fellows and associates, 50 PhD students, 100 MSc students and 700 undergraduates. 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. We achieved 93% overall satisfaction in the 2019 National Student Survey, while the Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset shows York's Maths graduates earning £34,000 after five years compared with a sector median of £30,000.

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.
