Maths & Stats CDT
The Warwick Centre of Doctoral Training (CDT) in Mathematics and Statistics is an exciting new collaboration between the Mathematics Institute and the Department of Statistics. It has started its first year of operation in October 2019 and 8 out of 9 of our new intake of PhD students in Statistics now follow the programme, which consists of an intensive taught component and a four-month project in the first year. New students have an academic advisor to help them optimize their learning experience and preparation for the thesis research in the later years. A variety of social activities, workshops and research meetings will also enhance the cohort experience. More details can be found at https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/statistics/postgrad/research/
