Welcome to the website of the Scottish Mathematical Sciences Training Centre (SMSTC), a consortium of mathematical sciences departments in Scotland.
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, from October to March, as shown in our timetable. There are sixteen 10-week core modules (organised in four "themes") plus a varying number of supplementary modules. The About Us page has more information on SMSTC.
We welcome participating PhD students from any place and discipline (provided you meet the pre-requisites). Contact Johanna McBryde for information on how to register and registration fees.
SMSTC is one of the UK's six mathematical sciences Taught Course Centres (TCCs).
