Do you enjoy mathematics and want to take your skills to the next level? As a student at the specialisation in Mathematics, within the Master’s Programme in Mathematics, you will get deeper insight in most major and topical areas of mathematics. Since all the teachers at the programme are also active researchers with many international contacts, your studies will provide you access to the modern mathematical world.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
This specialisation in Mathematics focuses on both breadth and depth of the mathematics field, which will give you a strong theoretical foundation that will be of great benefit if you choose to continue to graduate studies and aim for a career in research. You can also get additional perspectives on the mathematical theory by combining your theoretical studies with courses from other disciplines. The programme provides a great freedom of choice, as you will be able to select courses that suit your interests.
During the programme you can expect to:
- gain a strong theoretical foundation to continue to graduate studies and aim for a career in research
- have a wide range of courses in algebra, analysis, geometry and probability theory
- get additional perspectives on the mathematical theory by combining your theoretical studies with courses from other disciplines
You will have the opportunity to study a wide range of courses in algebra, analysis, geometry and probability theory. You will achieve a more thorough understanding of the logical and conceptual relationships between the mathematical concepts that you have previously studied. You will see these concepts in a more general and modern context, as well as studying them in greater detail and with greater depth. This way, your knowledge in mathematics will become both more general and more useful.
You have a strong foundation and a deep interest in mathematics and enjoy the challenge that studying mathematics at higher level provides. You are extremely motivated and prepared to invest a great amount of time and energy in your studies. English is no problem for you and you understand that studying mathematics at Uppsala University will take a lot of hard work and analytical thinking. You want an educational experience that challenges you.
A future PhD education is definitely a possibility you have thought about and you would value an opportunity to get in closer contact with current research. Even if you are thinking about a career outside of academia, for example in finance where mathematicians are in high demand, you believe that PhD studies will take you further on that path as well. Therefore you are looking for a Master’s degree that also makes you competitive if you decide to apply for PhD studies after graduation.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Mathematics as the main field of study. After one year of study it may also be possible to obtain a Master of Science (60 credits).
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university.
Also required is 90 credits in mathematics.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
