The Berlin Mathematical School is the joint graduate school of the mathematics departments at the three major universities in Berlin: Freie Universität, Humboldt-Universität and Technische Universität.
We offer an excellent (post)graduate program taught in English in a broad and active research environment. This is complemented by our mentoring program, language courses, soft-skills seminars, travel support for summer schools and conferences, and special funding for students with children.
Our seven main research areas are:
- Differential geometry, global analysis and mathematical physics
- Algebraic and arithmetic geometry, number theory
- Probability, statistics and financial mathematics
- Discrete mathematics and combinatorial optimization
- Geometry, topology and visualization
- Numerical mathematics and scientific computing
- Applied analysis and differential equations
The graduate program starts with three to four semesters of course work (Phase I) leading to a master’s degree. This is followed by four to six semesters of thesis research (Phase II) leading to a doctoral degree at one of the three universities.
Students who will have completed their bachelor’s degree by October 2016 can apply to Phase I; those who will have completed their master’s degree by this date can apply to start directly in Phase II.
