Application Requirements

If you are looking to apply to a Master degree in Mathematics or its various sub-fields, you will typically need to present a first academic degree in Mathematics. Depending on which program you want to study, you may also be admitted if you studied a related subject, as long as you obtained enough credits in Mathematics. For most programs, entrance tests or interviews are not part of the admission process, students must simply submit required documents (first degree certificate and a transcript of records). These typically include your CV and a letter of motivation and sometimes letters of references. Additionally, you will have to prove your English language abilities with a language certificate.
