The programme starts with the Master Kick-Off, which is held in an off campus location during the first 3 days of the academic year. The Master Kick-Off consists of lectures and social activities designed to help and guide all our freshman students in their Master’s Programme.
The Applied Mathematics programme is divided in eight quarters. At the end of each quarter or two quarters students carry out exams, depending on the length of the course. In the first year you will spend most of the time on courses, core courses as well as courses relevant to the specialisation you have chosen. The Compulsary Courses section consists of 5 courses of which 3 must be selected. Every one of those five courses belongs to one of the five specialisations.
For the Orientation Courses at least 2 courses have to be selected from MasterMath. Depending on the course, you will have several lectures in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Enschede or Eindhoven and can contain an intensive week at University of Twente. In this week you will focus on that particular course via lectures and/or projects.
The specialisation courses enable a deep specialisation for the optimal execution of your thesis project and are the main focus in the second semester. The free electives allow technical and non-technical courses, also from other faculties and universities, such as entrepreneurship, language and additional presentation courses, an internship or participation in an exchange program.
If you want to expand your horizon and experience more of the world, you can choose to study abroad during the second or third semester of the programme. Whether you want to experience the lively and exhilarating city of Brisbane, learn from the Japanese approach of science or breathe the Swiss fresh air during an exchange programme, it is possible. In addition to international student exchanges for one semester, students may choose to write their Master’s thesis with a foreign partner as a client.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
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.

The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test.

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).

In most cases, if you hold a BSc degree and the Master’s programme is closely related to your Bachelor’s programme, you will be admitted directly into the programme. However, if the Master’s programme does not follow directly from your undergraduate programme, you will be required to take additional courses in what is called a bridging programme. This may be a standard programme, or it may be tailored to your specific situation.
Numerous scholarships are awarded to admitted students with exceptional promise and outstanding academic achievement by the university, its faculties, departments and industry partners. Consideration for these scholarships requires students to have been admitted to their MSc Programme. Make sure you submit your application as early as possible to be in time for all the scholarship deadlines.
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.
