SMSTC: Scottish Mathematical Sciences Training Centre


Welcome to the website of the Scottish Mathematical Sciences Training Centre (SMSTC)

We are currently redesigning our site. Course information, lecture notes etc. are now available (for registered users) by following the links from Streams and Modules on the menu above. Some more general information may be found on the temporary page

The SMSTC is 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.

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.

Registration for 2014-15

Registration for 2014-15 is now open.
