The objective of the MSc programme in Mathematics centres on the study and development of techniques to tackle pure and applied mathematical questions.

By definition infinite, mathematics finds its way into unexpected applications, with new paths always waiting to be explored.

Why the UvA/VU?
The programme is offered in full collaboration with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. This lets you benefit from the expertise, networks and partnership projects of the UvA as well as the VU Amsterdam. Both universities have an excellent international reputation, and together with the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI, next to the UvA Faculty of Science) they contribute to Amsterdam.

At the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics (KdvI) of the Universiteit van Amsterdam mathematics can be studied in its full richness. This is for a large part due to the character of the KdV Institute, and its faculty. At the KdV Institute research and education are mixed in a natural fashion, and pure and applied mathematics have fruitful interactions at various levels.
