The Department of Mathematical Sciences has strong traditions in both pure and applied research. The fact that we are a joint department, part of both Chalmers Technical University and University of Gothenburg, gives us a size and contact surface that make many cooperations and specializations possible. We have research groups in algebraic geometry and number theory, biomathematics, complex analysis, computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, harmonic analysis and partial differential equations, kinetic theory, optimization, probability theory, wavelets, bioinformatics and statistical genetics, biostatistics, spatio-temporal stochastic models with environmental and marine applications, population dynamics, particle systems and statistical physics, extreme value theory, telecommunications, material fatigue and reability, environmental statistics, spatial statistics and image analysis, markov theory and algorithmic applications, and mathematical finance.
As well as qualifying for graduate studies in mathematics and mathematical statistics, the Master's Programme can provide you with a background desirable to many employers, such as medical, industrial, consulting, insurance, or financial businesses, or public employers.
Full programme cost 265 200 SEK. First payment 66 300 SEK. Tuition fee does not apply for EU/EEA citizens or exchange students.
The programme has the following specializations: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, and Mathematical Statistics. A number of advanced courses are available for each specialization. It is possible to complement your background with courses on a more basic level, or to follow research-level courses.
The specialization towards financial mathematics is a cooperation with the school of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg.
The programme contains a masters thesis project of 30 higher educational credits, which may be done in cooperation with an external institution.
A Bachelor's degree containing at least 75 higher education credits (hec) in mathematics and mathematical statistics, or equivalent. Applicants must prove their knowledge of English: English 6/English B from Swedish Upper Secondary School or the equivalent level of an internationally recognized test, for example TOEFL, IELTS.
Selection: The selection is based upon grades, with special attention to grades in mathematics and mathematical statistics.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
The University of Gothenburg has approximately 37,000 students and 5,900 employees. It is one of the major universities in northern Europe. We are also one of the most popular universities in Sweden – the University of Gothenburg has the highest number of applicants to many programmes and courses.
