Details about program-based M.Math., thesis-based M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs are below.
For a thesis-based M.Sc. and a Ph.D. degree, the student will conduct research usually supervised by a research supervisor. For information on research groups and research interests of our faculty members, see the “Research” item in the top menu.

Programs: Our Department offers the following degree programs.
The minimum residency required for the course-based M.Math program is 12 months. Typically, a student will complete the program within two years.
The research for the Ph.D. thesis and the thesis preparation are normally supervised by the research supervisor. The student is required to submit a thesis containing a worthwhile contribution to knowledge and warranting publication. The adequacy of the thesis is decided by an examining committee consisting of the Advisory Committee and an External examiner from outside this University. The candidate must pass an oral examination based on the work in the thesis.
