Why Study Maths at St Hilda’s?

The College has a large Mathematics community and a friendly and academically challenging environment in which students thrive and receive the support needed to reach their full potential. Our students are taught at lectures in the Mathematical Institute and by St Hilda's College Fellows, Professor Gregory Seregin and Professor Irene Moroz. They are leading scientists in the theory and applications of Partial Differential equations and in Nonlinear Dynamical Systems and Mathematical Geosciences respectively.

Our students' achievements include a Junior Mathematics Prize in Part B Examinations, winning an award at a Summer Essay Competition, and a good proportion of first/high 2:1-class examinations results, together with PhD/DPhil scholarships in leading universities. Many of them have gone on to pursue higher degrees or have embarked on careers in Finance, Teaching, and Industry.

St Hilda’s Mathematics Seminar Series: The newly established seminar series, which we hope to make an annual event, features St Hilda's mathematics students giving presentations on a mathematical topic of their choice. Recently discussed subjects included the Riemann Hypothesis, the Theory of Chaos and the Mathematics of Juggling.

Maths Dinners: At least once a year College tutors organise a dinner for all mathematics students at St. Hilda's.
