About us


The School has over 35 members of academic staff, about 500 undergraduate students studying programmes where mathematics is a major component, and about 20 further students on postgraduate programmes. In addition there are roughly 35 research students working with members of staff on a wide variety of research problems, such as the study of gravitational waves and the theory of stochastic partial differential equations.

The Mathematics Learning Support Centre provides the environment and expertise to ensure that all students (whatever their programme of study) have the opportunity to develop their mathematical skills to the best of their ability.

The School aims to produce mathematically well-educated graduates from its programmes, to train postgraduate students in specialist topics and to further the development of mathematics and its applications through research. We are committed to providing a quality service in all our teaching and other educational activities.


Loughborough University is firmly established as one of the leading research-led universities in the UK. The strong research activity of the School impinges on students in a number of ways. In particular, student projects frequently arise as offshoots of current research work and also final-year options can be presented in the light of up-to-date research results. Indeed research and consultancy interests of staff are often closely related to the subjects they teach at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.


The School of Mathematics is responsible for single honours programmes in Mathematics, as well as joint honours programmes in conjunction with the Business School, the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences and the Departments of Computer Science, Economics and Physics. The School of Mathematics is also responsible for most of the mathematics teaching to non-mathematics specialists throughout the University.

The School of Mathematics also runs postgraduate programmes in Industrial Mathematical Modelling and Mathematical Processes in Finance.
