An EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre in Geometry and Number Theory


London School of Geometry & Number Theory

Women in Geometry and Number Theory

The London School of Geometry and Number Theory will promote equality and fairness and foster a supportive and collaborative environment for all of its students.

One of our particular aims is to recruit a critical mass of women students and to help counteract the under-representation of women in UK mathematics. We therefore strongly encourage interested undergraduate women mathematicians to apply to the LSGNT and hope to receive a great number of applications from women.

Links with Oxford and Cambridge

The LSGNT is pleased to announce opportunities provided by collaboration with the MSc in Mathematical Sciences (OMMS) at the University of Oxford, the Masters in Advanced Study Course (Part III) in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Statistics (DPMMS) at the University of Cambridge, and Newnham College Cambridge Newnham College Cambridge.

Deferred LSGNT Studentship: If you are a woman undergraduate considering the one year OMMS and/or Part III master's degree course, and a PhD in Geometry and Number Theory, you are strongly encouraged to apply simultaneously both to Oxford and/or Cambridge and to the LSGNT, and to let Oxford and/or Cambridge ( know that you wish to be considered for the LSGNT deferred entry scheme. We hope to offer a deferred LSGNT studentship to one to two women applicants who have accepted a place on either OMMS or Part III. If you are applying to do Part III, please note the opportunity for financial assistance provided by the Sheila Edmonds Bursary (see below). If you are offered a place at the LSGNT, please let us know if you have also applied to the OMMS and/orPart III and are waiting to hear from them. Women applicants who did not get an offer from the LSGNT in the first round but are accepted to either OMMS or Part III should also let us know that they wish to be considered for a deferred PhD place (i.e. commencing September 2021).

Sheila Edmonds Bursary: Newnham College and DPMMS jointly will be offering a new bursary for up to three women students taking the pure mathematics Part III course. This bursary is not limited to students wishing to study geometry and number theory but covers all areas taught by DPMMS.

Additional Information

All three departments are supporters of the LMS Good Practice Scheme and together with their respective Institutions are engaged in the Athena Swan project.
