The School of Mathematics offers four Ph.D. degrees: pure mathematics, probability and mathematical statistics, applied mathematics and operational research and control theory. The general rules governing the four degree programs are the same. In outline, to qualify for either of these degrees, the candidate must pass a three-hour written Preliminary Qualifying Examination, on material which is primarily at the graduate level, within 12 months of entering the master degree program.
