Mathematical Sciences MPhil/PhD

Major code: MPMR


Entry requirements

Applications are welcome from students who have (or expect to obtain) a good Honours degree (first class or 2:1) or an equivalent qualification.

Since a wide background in mathematics is required for success in research, students with a higher qualification (eg MSc, MMath, Cambridge Part III) will find they are better prepared for starting research.

Those without the higher qualification may be required to follow some or all of the taught part of the MSc.

International Qualifications

Applications from international students are welcome. International qualifications will be evaluated in line with the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) guidelines.

English Language Qualifications

All applicants must have reached a minimum required standard of English language and are required to provide evidence of this. Qualifications accepted by the University can be found on our International webpages. Please see www.liv.ac.uk/international for English Language requirements specific to your country.

If you meet the academic requirements of the course but do not have the required level of English Language, it is possible for you to come and study at the University on one of our Pre-sessional EAP programmes.  Please see the English Language Centre website for further information about these programmes; www.liv.ac.uk/english-language-centre/pre-sessional-eap.

If you require additional English Language training during your study, the University is able to provide tuition and arrange IELTS tests through its English Language Centre, details of which are available at www.liverpool.ac.uk/english-language-centre.
