This is a Joint Degree Programme of the Department of Education, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Cyprus and the Department of Mathematics of the University of Athens, offer a postgraduate programme leading to a Master Degree in "Didactics and Methodology of Mathematics."

A limited number (15) of Cypriot students will be accepted to the programme. Two-thirds of the programme will be offered in Cyprus by academic staff from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Education. The remaining credits will be fulfilled in Athens, in the summer session.

Duration: The minimum period of study for full-time students is three (3) academic semesters and the maximum period of study is eight (8) academic semesters.

The postgraduate programmes of each department are supervised by a three-member Postgraduate Programmes Committee, chaired by a Postgraduate Programmes Coordinator. The Coordinator may be the chairperson of the department or a member of the academic staff appointed by the chairperson. The other members of the committee are appointed by the Departmental Board. The Committee is appointed for a two-year term.

For every student in the Postgraduate Programme, the department appoints an Academic Supervisor, whereas at the research stage of the Ph.D. a Research Supervisor is appointed. Candidate students select a member of the academic staff to act as their Research Supervisor. The student´s choice must be approved by the Postgraduate Programmes Coordinator. The Research Supervisor guides the students in their research and provides the necessary help and advice.

The programmes of study of the University of Cyprus are based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). An ECTS normally corresponds to a 25-30 hours workload per semester. Full-time status requires a courseload of 21 ECTS per semester. Students carrying fewer ECTS are considered part-time.

Nine (9) courses and three (3) seminars are required for the completion of the programme:

* six courses from the area of Didactics and Methodology of Mathematics
* one Statistics course
* two courses from the area of History - Philosophy
* three seminars

9 courses X 9 ECTS and 3 seminars X 3 ECTS = TOTAL 90 ECTS
