The Korteweg-de Vries Institute of the University of Amsterdam offers three distinct master's programmes in mathematical sciences:
- Mathematics (tracks ranging from algebraic geometry to numerical analysis)
- Mathematical Physics (for those with serious interest and talent in both mathematics as well as theoretical physics)
- Stochastics and Financial Mathematics (tracks ranging from financial mathematics to mathematical statistics and applied probability. A special track on applied mathematical finance is supplemented by courses offered by the Faculty of Economics and Business)
Master's programmes in mathematical sciences are part of the Graduate School of Sciences and are given in collaboration with the VU University Amsterdam (VU).
Together with the Faculty of Economics and Business a double master's programme is offered that combines the MSc Stochastics and Financial Mathematics or the MSc Mathematics with the MSc Econometrics.
National Master Courses
For each of those three programs there are substantial possibilities to attend courses from the Dutch Master Programme in Mathematics
These are special courses, given at central locations in the Netherlands, for students of all mathematical master's programmes offered in the Netherlands.
To get an overview of the research projects carried out by our master's students, please visit the page with finished master theses.
For students in our three mathematical master's programmes there are usually some teaching assistantships available. Requirements include a good knowledge of mathematics as taught in bachelor's courses, and fluency in Dutch or English. Please contact Dr. Chris Zaal for more information.
