HoDoMS (Heads of Departments of Mathematical Sciences) is a body that represents United Kingdom departments of Mathematics and Statistics in higher education by co-ordinating senior members of these departments.


The Committee of HoDoMS meets 3 times a year, in September, in January and at the Annual Conference in April.


In recent years it has been concerned with issues such as the Research Excellence Framework assessment in 2014; the impact of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council policies including full economic costing and Open Source publishing; the interface between Government and Mathematical Sciences in Higher Education; the policy of the Ofqual (previously Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency); the future of the MMath; support for new lecturers provided the Higher Education Authority (MSOR).

It has close links with the Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education which is a primary link with the Department for Education in the development of curriculum and assessment.
