The Kate Edger Department of Mathematics

Life at the Department of Mathematics

There is more to university life than study. On and off campus, you will find a multitude of cultural, social and leisure activities to entertain and inspire you. There is always something happening, whatever your interests.


Centrally located on the City Campus, we are right next to Albert Park, which during the warmer months is a hive of activity ranging from ultimate frisbee, to simply relaxing in the sunshine. We are immediately next to the Recreation Centre and the Kate Edgar student commons area, with easy access to the many food outlets, banks and more. We also have an active Mathematics Club which meets fortnightly to socialise and play games.

There are monthly colloquium talks for all students, weekly department seminars for graduate students in a range of subjects to broaden your mathematical horizons, and several public lectures each year, to which all are made to feel welcome.

The Summer Scholarships represent an opportunity for senior undergraduates to join a research project, experience research and get an idea of the type of problems they could encounter at graduate level.

Students with good grades in first and second year Mathematics courses are encouraged to apply for assignment marking duties in the Department. Senior undergraduates and graduate students are eligible to assist with lab demonstrations, one-on-one, assistance room or small-class tutoring.

An Undergraduate Mathematics Community mailing list and a public lectures mailing list allow us to keep in touch and send updates about upcoming events and opportunities. Email us if you wish to join.
