Mathematics (MSc)

Course Description


The objective of the MSc programme in Mathematics centres on the study and development of techniques to tackle pure and applied mathematical questions. The aim of the programme is to provide students with such a knowledge, abilities and insight in mathematics and related fields, that they are able to work as a mathematical professional (including teacher at a Dutch High School), or are qualified for a training as scientific researcher. The education also aims at enlarging the insight in the sciences as a whole and in their role in society.

The Master's programme in Mathematics reflects the versatility of mathematics. It offers students the opportunity to specialise in a particular area of interest to them and to expand their knowledge of the subject in general.
Studying Mathematics in Amsterdam

The programme is offered in collaboration with the VU University Amsterdam. The programme is also a part of the nationwide collaboration between all mathematic institutes.

Together with the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica, CWI), both universities contribute to Amsterdam's role as a pioneer in national and international mathematics. In addition, the departments of Mathematics at the Dutch universities have joined in their efforts to enhance their Master's programmes in Mathematics. These efforts are partly aimed at organising joint courses in mathematics. The joint courses offer students high quality instruction and create opportunities for interaction with staff and students from other mathematics institutes. The joint programme broadens the range of options open to students wishing to pursue a PhD upon graduation from the Master's programme.
What our students say

Science in Amsterdam

The University of Amsterdam (UvA) collaborates closely with the VU University Amsterdam in most of the tracks in physics, chemistry and mathematics. Both universities have an excellent international reputation, with several research groups playing leading roles in various scientific fields. Their collaboration has resulted in a range of high-quality Master of Science programmes. As a result of this cooperative relationship, students benefit from the expertise, the existing networks and collaborative projects of both universities.
Accreditation and degree

The Master's programme in Mathematics has been legally accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This means that upon successful completion of the programme, students will receive a legally accredited Master's degree in Mathematics and the title of Master of Science (MSc).

Entry Requirements

Applicants should hold a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. This Master's programme is a regular study programme for Dutch Master's students, but has also been adapted to accommodate international students with a relevant Bachelor's degree or suitable science major from a foreign university
