The MIGSAA programme is now closed to applicants.  A new, 4-year, doctoral training programme, the Maxwell Institute Graduate School in Mathematical Modelling, Analysis and Computation (MAC-MIGS), will be recruiting for entry in September 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.  See for details and to register interest.  The new programme has a similar structure to MIGSAA.

MIGSAA offered a fully-funded 4-year PhD with Integrated Study to students interested in Analysis and its Applications.  We considered applicants in the final year of their undergraduate degree, or students working to complete an appropriate MSc programme.

MIGSAA is a Centre for Doctoral Training that provides high quality instruction in analysis and the applications of analysis to a wide range of areas.  It is a joint venture between the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University under the aegis of the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences.  The degree programme is jointly administered between the two universities, students are registered at both, and receive a PhD jointly awarded by the two institutions.  Students are trained across the broad spectrum of Analysis and its Applications, including theoretical analysis, PDE, stochastic analysis, numerics and appropriate areas of applied mathematics.  Details of the programme structure are available on our website at
