LSGNT Open Day 2019

If you'd like to find out more about the London School of Geometry and Number Theory and what it is like to study for a PhD in pure mathematics with us, then please come and visit us at UCL on our Open Day on 12 February 2019. There will be presentations on research in Geometry and Number Theory in London and the structure of the LSGNT. There will also be an opportunity to meet and hear from some of our current PhD students and academics. If you'd like to attend this free event, please register here.

Breaking News: 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.
