About

This library has recently made a very large commitment of resources to providing comprehensive online facilities for the free use of the University's research community. Postgraduate students in the School benefit from direct access to all the Library electronic resources from their offices.

Many research seminars are held in the School on a weekly basis and allow staff and research students to stay in touch with the latest developments in their fields. 

The School is one of the lead partners in the MAGIC project and research students can attend any of the postgraduate courses offered by the MAGIC consortium

Opportunities for PhD research are available in a wide range of topics in Mathematical Logic. For some of the available areas of possible PhD research see the current Mathematical Logic research areas . 

For more details about the specific projects, please contact the relevant individual members of staff or get in touch with the Logic Postgraduate Admissions Tutor .

Students may enter our graduate programme in Mathematical Logic by initially taking our taught M.Sc. course over 1 year. This will provide an introduction to mathematical logic and, subject to satisfactory progress, can lead to admission to the PhD programme.
