Postgraduate Study in Number Theory
King's College London offers a one-year (full time) or two-year (part-time) MSc programme in Mathematics. This programme consists of eight taught courses and a project. A wide range of taught courses is available, including ones in number theory and related topics.
The PhD degree in Mathematics is a research degree which usually requires three to four years of study; most of this time is spent undertaking research and writing a dissertation. Members of the group supervise PhD students working in various aspects of number theory related to their research interests.
London is a leading centre for number theory research, and home to the London School of Geometry and Number Theory. This is a newly established EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training which is jointly run by King's College, Imperial College and University College and combines their formidable strength in these fields. Beginning in 2014, students pursuing a PhD in Number Theory (or Geometry) at one of the partner institutions will normally do so as part of the Centre for Doctoral Training.
Doctoral training in number theory at King's is enhanced by several other collaborative endeavours. These include the weekly London Number Theory Seminar and Study Groups which rotate between King's, Imperial and UCL, and the London Taught Course Centre which offers a broad range of advanced courses for PhD students in mathematics.
Most funding for PhD study in number theory at King's is expected to be through the Centre for Doctoral Training, but other opportunities available are listed on our Funding and Fees page. The Postgraduate Funding Database also lists funding available across the College.
