Welcome to the website of the Scottish Mathematical Sciences Training Centre (SMSTC), an EPSRC-funded consortium of the mathematical sciences departments of the seven universities whose logos are shown below, while Stirling is an associate member.
SMSTC's prime aim is to provide high-quality broad training in fundamental areas of mathematics and statistics for beginning PhD students at a level comparable to that of first-year PhD courses in North America or mainland Europe. Teaching is by video-conference lectures in two semesters, running from October to March, as shown in our timetable. There are eight streams split into two 10-week modules, and they are listed in the menu bar above.
We welcome participating PhD students from any place and discipline (provided you meet the pre-requisites). Contact Audrey Brown or Diane Horberry for information on how to register and registration fees.
SMSTC is one of EPSRC's six mathematical sciences Taught Course Centres (TCCs).
