Maths First-Generation Scholars Group

The Department has a First-Generation Scholars group run by Katie Gittins and Tyler Helmuth.

This group forms part of the University's First-Generation Scholars network which aims to support, celebrate and promote the achievements of people who come from backgrounds that don't typically go to university as well as those who are the first generation in their family to go to university.

To this end, there are termly events to give first-generation scholars a chance to meet each other, have a chat about relevant issues and share tips on navigating university life.

Please contact Katie or Tyler if you would like to join the mailing list of this group, or have any questions or comments related to First-Generation Scholars issues.

Any member of Durham University who identifies as a first-generation scholar and has interest in Mathematics is welcome to join.

Many of your lecturers and tutors are themselves first-generation scholars.  Here are some of them:
