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.
