There are many reasons why you might want to study on a PhD programme in the MEC. You might want to develop your research skills set. You could be inclined to spend a time of your life doing something that will ultimately make a difference in improving mathematics learning, teaching, recruitment and engagement or helping students with low confidence in mathematics. You may be persuaded to work in an internationally celebrated institution with leading figures in mathematics education.
You might also want to work with us in our friendly office. You are welcome to join our lunch club, with daily trips to one of the eating establishments on campus; you can join the tea/coffee club; and you could join the MEC Warriors – the incredible Thursday night pub quiz team.
Best of luck should you apply. Feel free to ask me about PhD life at the Mathematics Education Centre!
