The courses are fully described in the University Prospectus. Our tutors' research interests are in Numerical Analysis, Number Theory and Mathematical Biology, respectively, and their teaching interests cover a wide range of Mathematics in, respectively: Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics and Statistics. Dr Volker Halbach, a Logician and Fellow in Philosophy at New College specialises and teaches in the areas of Philosophy taken during the first two years of the Mathematics & Philosophy course. Computer Science students and joint course students in Mathematics & Computer Science are tutored for Computer Science by Dr Geraint Jones.

The Savilian Professor of Geometry, Professor Nigel Hitchin, F.R.S., holds a Fellowship at the College, as does Professor Marcus du Sautory, O.B.E., who is Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science. There is often also a Junior Research Fellow in Mathematics.
