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, or are qualified for a training as scientific researcher. The programme in reflects the versatility of mathematics. It offers students the opportunity to specialise in a particular area of interest to them. It is offered in collaboration with the VU University Amsterdam. The programme is also 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. The joint programme broadens the range of options open to students wishing to pursue a PhD upon graduation from the Master's programme.
This programme has a workload of 120 ECTS.
