We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Master's programme in Mathematics at Radboud University offers you a thorough theoretical training, while maintaining a clear perspective on concrete applications whenever appropriate. Its wide scope, which ranges from medical statistics to the mathematical foundations of computer science, physics and even mathematics itself, reflects the diversity of research at the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP).
Mathematical research of course stands on its own, as is notably the case with the large group in algebraic topology led by Spinoza laureate Ieke Moerdijk. In addition, within IMAPP, researchers link with high-energy physics, including Higgs physics and quantum gravity. Outside IMAPP

After getting a double BSc in Physics and Mathematics, Tim was looking for a challenge. "Initially, I considered physics, but gradually I got more and more interested in Maths. I'm really fascinated by pure mathematics and understanding physics in a mathematical sense. So I chose to do an MSc in Mathematical Physics."
Tim, now in the second year of his Master's programme, has started working on his thesis. "I'm trying to find a new method for geometric quantization of the Kepler gravitational two-body problem (in case you don't know, Kepler was a German astronomer who lived around 1600 who described the orbits of planets). We want to calculate the spectrum of the hydrogen atom using both analysis and geometry.
Although complex computations are often done by computers, Tim also enjoys low-tech problem solving. "The elegance of maths is that you can work on solving a complex problem without any aids. I just use paper and pencil - I don't need anything else. The beauty is also that, once a statement has been proved, there's no longer any discussion about whether or not it's true."
Tim appreciates the small scale of the Maths MSc programme in Nijmegen and the accessibility of the professors. "I meet regularly with my supervisor to make sure I'm still on the right track, but other than that, I work on my own. It's kind of cool to do your own research. I also like the national MSc programme that's open to students from all Dutch universities. The courses are taught by national experts in different areas of mathematics."
"I still need to finish a few courses," he says, "but I now know that my real passion is research. Some of my fellow students intend to apply their knowledge in other areas, but I hope to be able to continue doing maths research as a PhD student. I think that's the best way to keep in touch with new developments in this fascinating field."
