Groups and dynamics have played an integral role in the study of operator algebras ever since the pioneering work of Murray and von Neumann. Over the last couple of decades this relationship has been intensifying in various directions on both the von Neumann algebra and C*-algebra sides. This conference promotes interaction and collaboration within and across these streams by bringing together experts in groups, dynamics, and diverse facets of operator algebra theory.

Last week on Friday 29 April, the School of Mathematical Sciences hosted the annual Postgraduate Research Day. The event, which was open to all staff and students, showcased the students’ ongoing research projects in a supportive environment. At the end of the event, prizes were awarded to students to 2nd year students judged have given the best poster and 3rd year students or research presentation.

Postgraduate funding

For students considering applying to our Masters programmes there are plenty of things to consider, including the important question of funding.

Thankfully, there is a significant amount of support available both from the University and from other sources. The full detail of this support can be found on our Funding a Masters webpages.


We have the pleasure of confirming two sources of funding in particular, to be drawn to your attention:

1. QMUL School of Mathematical Sciences – Scholarships for MSc students

2. New governmental Postgraduate Loans Scheme, starting 2016
