This year, the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science (SMSAS) at the University of Essex will be hosting the annual LMS Undergraduate Summer School.

LMS Undergraduate Summer School

The Summer School is an annual two-week residential course for up to 50 Maths UG mathematics students who are progressing into their final year of undergraduate study. The aim is to encourage the best mathematical students each year to consider further study, by introducing them to various topics in modern mathematics that they may not have seen at undergrad level.

Participating students are nominated by their respective departments with each university usually sending just one student, therefore, places are limited and highly selective.

For more information about the history of the LMS Summer Schools please contact or visit the London Mathematical Society Summer School webpage.

Funding bodies and sponsorship

The Summer School is generously supported by the London Mathematical Society. The University of Essex has supplied physical and online facilities for this event. The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science is providing all organisational and administrative support.

The London Mathematical Society (LMS) is the major UK learned society for mathematics with a national and international membership of over 3,000. Founded in 1865 for the promotion and extension of mathematical knowledge, the LMS was granted a Royal Charter in 1965. The Society's main activities include publishing journals and books, providing grants to support mathematics and organising scientific meetings and lectures. The Society is also involved in policy and strategic work to support mathematics and the mathematics research community. This work includes engaging with government and policymakers on mathematics education and research, participating in international mathematical initiatives and promoting the discipline.
