School of Mathematics and Physics

Maths and Physics Banner


The Lincoln School of Mathematics and Physics opened its doors in September 2014. It is the result of a close collaboration with industrial partners, and a £6.8m grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) Catalyst Fund.

Our award-winning staff conduct cutting-edge research in fundamental and applied mathematics and physics, ranging from pure mathematics to applied nano-science at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. 

The School collaborates with top research institutions in Germany, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain and the USA.

We offer a range of programmes from BSc up to PhD in both Mathematics and Physics. Our students are immersed in a supporting and nurturing teaching environment. Research forms a key part of all our programmes, with students working individually and collaboratively on independent research, culminating in their final year project.

A number of our programmes meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applicationswhen followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master's degrees.


Our BSc Physics degrees are recognised by the Institute of Physics (IOP).




New home for Mathematics and Physics:

The University has invested heavily in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects by creating the Isaac Newton Building.
