Aims and Background
Established in 1973, our MPhil degree programme prepares students for further studies in mathematics and related fields at postgraduate level. Some graduates have also become high school teachers and industry professionals.
Established in 1988, our PhD degree programme cultivates competent researchers in mathematics for academia and industrial research and development.
Since 2004, qualified undergraduate degree holders and MPhil students may opt for our Accelerated MPhil-PhD degree programme to study for a PhD directly. It is more demanding on the student and requires a recommendation from the prospective supervisor apart from typical application procedures. The curriculum is the same as for our PhD degree programme.
