courses in complexity science



Fully-funded PhD places are available at the new Center for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Computational Modelling. The CDT pursues computational modelling research spanning engineering, computer science, mathematics, and the physical, natural and life sciences.

There are a growing number of postgraduate opportunities in complexity science. But which is right for you?
Until recently, UK postgraduate training in complexity science was limited to a small number of PhD places scattered across a disparate array of university departments Today the possibilities are much more varied. Whether you have studied biology, computer science, maths, physics, geography, economics, or even architecture, there are opportunities suited to your background.

New doctoral training centres are focussing considerable student numbers on topics in complexity science, while dedicated masters-level courses in complexity science are also beginning to be offered by UK universities. Follow the links below to find out more about these opportunities.
