The School of Mathematics is one of the largest schools in the Faculty of Science, with about 120 members of academic staff and research assistants and 70 postgraduate students. Our staff and students are engaged in research across a wide range of areas in applied mathematics, probability, pure mathematics and statistics.
The school’s successes have been formally recognised in the latest Research Excellence Framework (2014), in which 87 per cent of the school’s research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent. According to the Times Higher Education analysis of these results, Bristol is in the top five UK mathematics departments, along with Cambridge, Imperial, Oxford and Warwick. In recent years the quality of our research has attracted a number of distinguished prizes and substantial external grants.
Graduates of the Mathematics programme offered by the University of Bristol have gone on to on to work in industry, finance, consultancy and academia, including post-doctoral positions and lectureships.
