Applications for PhD

Applying for a PhD involves the submission of a completed on-line application form supported by two references. For UK applicants, it may also involve an informal interview.

You will probably first wish to find out about the group and staff research interests first.

For the individual research interests of the members of the group, follow the links to the page Research Group.

A general outline of the group's research activity in mathematical finance can be found in: Research.

Key Links and Funding

In addition to the links at the right you will find the following links useful.

The admissions portal for registering to apply and for completing an on-line application: Admissions Portal.

The KCL on-line prospectures for research in mathematics: Mathematics Research

Funding for overseas students: The college graduate funding database indexed by subject area and your home nationality: Graduate Funding Database Note that the deadline for the official Overseas Student scheme is early in the New Year.

DTA Competition For UK students (and this may included candidates who have resided in the UK for a few years) you may be eligible to compete for the small number of doctoral awards (fees+maintenance, sometimes fees only) made each year. This funding is highly competitive and is allocated across the department over all research groups based on applicant quality. Candidates for this process would be expected to have a first class honours degree in mathematics or a related subject with a high degree of relevant content. Recent successful candidates have had MSc level qualifications at the distinction level. The discussions for the allocations of these awards often commences around late February preceeding the September admission, and candidates interested in this route should complete their on-line application by early February. The number of awards made varies from year to year.
