A common route for admission into our PhD programme is via the Centre’s MPhil programme on Scientific Computing. The MPhil is offered by the University of Cambridge as a full-time course and introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge. Covering topics of high-performance scientific computing and advanced numerical methods and techniques, it produces graduates with rigorous research and analytical skills, who are formidably well-equipped to proceed to doctoral research or directly into employment in industry.
