The use of mathematical and statistical models and methods have facilitated tremendous advances in knowledge during the last few centuries. Still, it may be today that the growth in ways of applying mathematical sciences is at its greatest, as ever-increasing data-collection and computing possibilities make new application ideas feasible.
Examples of this include finding disease-related genes, cryptography for the internet, and risk computations for new financial instruments. At the same time, the strong tradition of pure research in mathematics is continuing, where the research goal is simply to follow the human need to explore, and to understand the logical consequences of axioms. The interplay between these two sides of our field make this a very exciting time to study mathematics.
As well as qualifying for graduate studies in mathematics and mathematical statistics, the masters programme can provide you with a background desirable to many employers, such as medical, industrial, consulting, insurance, or financial businesses, or public employers.
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 Göteborg University, gives us a size and contact surface that make many cooperations and specializations possible.
The programme has five specializations: Mathematics, applied mathematics, finance mathematics, mathematical statistics, and biostatistics. 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 finance mathematics is a cooperation with the school of Business, Economics and Law at Göteborg university, and the specialization towards biostatistics is organized together with the AstraZeneca company.
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. English level B or English proficiency equivalent to IELTS 6.5 no part under 5.5 or TOEFL 575 p, TWE score 4.5 is also required.
Selection: The selection is based upon grades, with special attention to grades in mathematics and mathematical statistics.
|TOEFL paper-based test score:||575|
The University of Gothenburg is convinced that education and research flourish in an international environment. A mixture of students from different cultures enriches the learning environment and the University believes that motivated students should have a chance to study here, even if they dont have the means to cover all costs.
There are a number of opportunities to get a scholarship if you apply to the University of Gothenburg. If you are obliged to pay tuition fees in Sweden, you can apply for our scholarship that cover from half, to all of your tuition fees for the entire study programme.
There are also scholarship programmes available at bachelor's, master's, PhD and post-doctoral levels, which are administered by the Swedish Institute. The scholarship programmes target highly qualified students from certain countries.
You are normally required to take an English Proficiency Test if you come from a non-English speaking country.
