Part II

We usually have two or three Part II students at any one time in the group.  If you are interested in Part II projects then do go and meet the group at the poster session during the Part II open day. Jon prefers to meet with prospective Part II students towards the beginning of each Hilary term.  Do get in touch with him either in Michaelmas or Hilary to arrange a meeting.
