Course Overview

Cambridge mathematics, famous world-wide (think of Newton, Ramanujan, Hawking), is highly challenging but also deeply rewarding. The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, which sits alongside the new Centre for Mathematical Sciences just south of Fitzwilliam, is enhancing the excellent international reputation of Cambridge Mathematics even further.

The Benefits of Mathematics at Fitzwilliam College

Fitzwilliam, based only five minutes from the Centre for Mathematical Sciences where many lectures are held, offers students a friendly, supportive environment in which to pursue their mathematical studies. With only seven or eight students per year no one is overlooked, and via maths dinners and garden parties students readily get to know students in other year groups as well as the College Fellows.
