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 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 4th overall in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2021 and is ranked 2nd in the UK for learning resources in the National Student Survey 2021 (out of 69 ranking institutions).
