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

Last week, 20 members of the Maths Society travelled to Germany for an organised Maths-themed trip. The students stayed at a youth hostel in Giessen, from which they explored the city. During their stay they had the opportunity to visit Greifenstein Castle and Mathematikum; the world's first hands-on mathematics museum containing more than 150 exhibits, which open a new door to mathematics.
