School of Mathematical Sciences


We are delighted to announce that John Moriarty’s EPSRC Fellowship “Optimal prediction in local electricity markets” has been extended for period of three years.  This fellowship has so far concentrated on stochastic optimisation problems arising in small energy systems.  The continuation of the project, entitled "Markov chain optimisation for energy systems”, shifts the focus to large-scale systems.  The research will take both theoretical and applied perspectives, and aims to establish the UK as an international leader in this area.

We are delighted to announce that EPSRC-funded postdoc Heng Guo will receive a Distinguished Dissertation Award for his PhD thesis entitled “Complexity Classification of Exact and Approximate Counting Problems”. The award is sponsored by the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), which supports the interests of the subject in Europe.

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
