Math Students' Day 2023 -  Saturday 6 May

Math Students' Day 2023 will take place on Saturday 6 May, 9:00-18:30 in Lecture Hall MH:Hörmander, Mathematics Building.

The event is arranged by the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Faculty of Science and MUR, The Mathematics Education Council and it is dedicated to math students at all levels.

We have invited former students, faculty members, PhD Students, Bachelor and Master students representing all mathematical disciplines to share their views, interests, personal experience and career choices! 

This event is intended to offer all math students the opportunity to learn more about various aspects and directions in studying mathematics, from choosing course combinations, exchange studies, specialisations, degree projects, to getting prepared for a diverse work market.
