Postgraduate Admissions

Teaching

The course is exclusively by research.

One to one supervision

The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University’s expectations regarding supervision.

The department also produces a Research Student Handbook that describes in detail how these principles apply within DPMMS.

Feedback

Students can expect to receive an online feedback report each term.

Assessment

Thesis / Dissertation

Assessment for the PhD is by thesis and oral examination only. There is no standard format for the thesis in Mathematics (ie no prescribed word limit). Candidates should discuss the format appropriate to their topic with their supervisor.

The Mathematics Degree Committee oversees the examinations process and is responsible for approving the
research title of the thesis, appointing examiners and scrutinising the reports of those examiners before making
a decision on the outcome.
