    The central aim of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) is to educate cohorts of highly trained, outstanding mathematicians with deep expertise and interdisciplinary skills in the analysis and applications of PDEs, to help drive scientific advances over the next fifty years.

    The role of PDEs within mathematics, especially nonlinear analysis, geometry, topology, stochastic analysis, numerical analysis, and applied mathematics, and in other sciences (such as physics, chemistry, life sciences, climate modelling/prediction, materials science, engineering, and finance) is fundamental; it is at the heart of many scientific advances and is becoming increasingly significant.

    At the same time, the demands of applications have led to important developments in the analysis of PDEs, which have in turn proved valuable for applications.

    A sizeable yearly cohort has allowed the CDT to create new training mechanisms, so that you will learn theory, analysis, and applications of PDEs in a variety of fields in a coherent manner with a natural progression, by-passing a traditionally separate 'pure' or 'applied' approach to learning.

    You will undertake a four-year programme with the first year consisting of a set of intensive courses focusing on the analysis and applications of PDEs. The first year also includes two ten-week mini-projects allowing you to broaden your knowledge and find a field suitable for you to develop your main research topic for years two to four. 

    There will be annual reviews of your progress, drawing on indicators such as attendance, assessment of your mini-projects, and course results at the end of your first year, followed by the submission of a written report, in support of your transfer from Probationary Research Student status to DPhil status at the end of your second year, and a Confirmation of Status interview at the end of your third year, to ascertain progression towards the submission of your DPhil thesis.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class undergraduate degree with honours (or equivalent international qualifications), as a minimum, in mathematics or a related numerate discipline. 

    For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.6 out of 4.0.

    A previous master's degree is not required, though the requirement for a first-class undergraduate degree with honours can be alternatively demonstrated by strong performance in a master's degree.

    Highly motivated and mathematically capable students with a degree in other subjects are also encouraged to apply.

    If you hold non-UK qualifications and wish to check how your qualifications match these requirements, you can contact the National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC).

    No Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or GMAT scores are sought.
