This scholarship is specifically for students that have a strong mathematical background, particularly in probability and analysis. Students will need to have the following criteria:

  • a first class honours degree in a Mathematics or a related degree discipline
  • research interests that relates to the scientific areas covered by the CDT
  • intellectual curiosity
  • proficient in English

They also welcome applications from exceptional students in related subjects such as statistics, theoretical physics, computer science, engineering and natural sciences. Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class or honours degree (or equivalent international qualifications), in mathematics or a related discipline. The requirement for a first class degree with honours can be alternatively demonstrated by a strong degree at master’s level. International applicants are welcome to apply.
