LSGNT Open Day 07 December 2020

The London School of Geometry and Number Theory will be holding an Open day online on Monday 07 December 2020, for prospective applicants to our CDT for our September 2021 intake. To register for a free ticket to this event please visit Eventbrite.

More information on our PhD Research degree programme in Geometry and Number Theory a can be found on our programme information page.

Women In Number theory and Geometry (WINGs) Winter Retreat 7th-8th of January 2021

The London School of Geometry and Number Theory invites early career pure mathematicians who identify as female from around the UK to join us for a two day virtual retreat. The idea is to encourage networking and promote a sense of community for women in pure mathematics, particularly PhD students and those in the early stages of their career.

We will have a number of speakers at various stages in their careers talking on both academic and practical topics. There will also be some panel discussions and opportunities for the attendees to share their experiences and advice. In an attempt to create a sense of retreat we will also be providing our UK attendees with care packages (including coffee and paper). Finally there will be a series of short talks by participants and we encourage PhD students to sign up to give a 25 minute talk on their work.

Please follow this link to our website to find out more information about the retreat and sign up to attend.

Admissions Portal Opens for Applications for the September 2021 Intake

Our admissions portal for applications for our September 2021 intake is now open. Advice on what we are looking for in an applicant and what you can expect in an interview can be found here. Information on how to submit an application can be found on our apply page. Please note that we have fully funded studentships available for UK, EU and International applicants. We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within mathematics.

4th February 2019: LSGNT CDT renewed by the EPSRC

We are delighted to announce the renewal of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Geometry and Number Theory (London School of Geometry and Number Theory) through an EPSRC award of approximately £5.6M. This will bring an additional 75 students in geometry and number theory to UCL, King’s and Imperial College, of which 40 will be funded by EPSRC.

Since we admitted our first cohort of students in 2014, the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Geometry and Number Theory has been a spectacular success, attracting students from all over the world, and producing world-leading research. The renewal of the programme cements the UCL mathematics department’s leading role in the UK, and is a ringing endorsement of the collaboration between the departments and our novel approach to doctoral training in pure mathematics.

For more information on the CDTs to be funded by the UKRI please visit the EPSRC website.
