The purpose of the Master’s programme in Mathematics is to give students advanced theoretical knowledge of mathematics together with practical skills to apply this knowledge both to mathematical problems and in applications of mathematics. A highly flexible structure that allows for individual adaptation, diversified curriculum, a high theoretical level, and an active research-oriented environment are some of the strongest features of the programme.
The programme has two specialisations - Mathematics and Numerical Analysis. A vast variety of courses in all mathematical disciplines - pure and applied mathematics, numerical analysis and mathematical statistics - are available within the programme.
The programme was recently evaluated by a panel of mathematicians appointed by The Swedish Higher Education Authority (Universitetskanslersämbetet) and was ranked ‘Of highest quality’. (http://english.uk-ambetet.se/).
After graduating from this programme you are qualified to enter a PhD programme in mathematics. You will also have sufficient skills in applying mathematics to seek employment in industry, with government agencies and in other organisations working with mathematical problems.
Admission to the programme requires a BSc with at least 90 ECTS credits in mathematics. English B (advanced). See www.lunduniversity.lu.se for details on English proficiency levels. Selection of students is based on previous university/college studies and other merits such as letters of recommendation and statement of purpose. There are no tuition fees for EU/EEA citizens. For non-EU/EEA citizens the tuition fee for this programme is SEK 140 000 per year.
