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 undergraduate and postgraduate programmes from BSc up to PhD in both Mathematics and Physics. Our students are immersed in a supportive and nurturing teaching environment where research forms a key part of all our programmes, with students having the opportunity to work individually and collaboratively on independent research, culminating in final year projects.
Mathematics at Lincoln is ranked in the top 10 in the UK for overall student satisfaction according to the National Student Survey 2020 (out of 68 ranking institutions).
