Alumni/careers Videoconference is a success

On Wednesday 15th June 2016, five of our former students gave up some of their time (thanks to their current employers) to tell a group of our current undergraduates about their careers. They were also put on the spot, answering questions ranging from second year module choices to working hours.

Athena SWAN Bronze

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is delighted to announce it has been awarded Athena SWAN Bronze in the most recent round of applications. The application was led by Professor Paul Mansfield, and supported by a diverse self-assessment team consisting of academic staff, a retired School Master, postdocs, graduate students and undergraduate students of both genders. We have come a long way in the last three years, increasingly reflecting on gender issues in STEMM subjects, and we plan to continue to improve the quality of our working environment so that it is truly inclusive, for academics, students and administrative staff alike. We wish to thank all who helped us and will help us on the journey ahead.
