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 20 in the UK in The Guardian University Guide 2022 (out of 68 ranking institutions), and Physics and Astronomy at Lincoln is ranked 1st in the UK for graduate prospects in The Complete University Guide 2022 (out of 46 ranking institutions).
