A list of names come to mind when you think about Germany and Mathematics, and studying one of the English-taught Mathematics programs at a German university really gives you the chance to follow into their footsteps. There is for example Gauss, who discovered the normal distribution, as well as Cantor and his set theory, to name just a  few.

One thing that remained consistent in Germany regarding the study of Mathematics, is its high quality, but of course, if you look at the courses offered in the StudyFinder, you can see that German universities managed to develop with time, as well. In addition to the courses offered in the field of Mathematics, you will also find programs focusing on Computational Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Mathematical Physics or Mathematical Modelling. Browse your options in the StudyFinder and find the program that fits your interests best!

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.
