The Mathematics programme has two different profiles; one in mathematics education, oriented towards becoming a mathematics teacher, and one pure mathematical profile. In mathematics education, issues related to the teaching of mathematics are dealt with, with themes such as learning, teaching, and dissemination particularly relevant. The mathematical direction provided will allow students to gain advanced technical expertise and delve deeper into mathematics. Both profiles qualify students for lectureships after completed PPU education (Practical Pedagogical Education), and both qualify for PhD studies.
The University of Agder has a strong team of experts in mathematics and mathematics education, and in 2013 was awarded the status of National Centre of Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (Matric) from the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education, NOKUT.
All lectures can be given in English, if appropriate, for English-speaking students.

The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
The Master programme is based on the four-year Teacher Training programme or a Bachelor programme in Mathematics combined with the Post-Graduate Programme in Education. Admission requirements state that students must have a mark of C or better before entering the programme.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
