For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in mathematics or an equivalent degree with a number of credit points in mathematics corresponding to that of the bachelor’s program in mathematics at Freie Universität Berlin.

  • With certain restrictions, it is possible to complete the master’s degree program by taking classes solely in English. The necessary English language skills must as a rule be proven by exam results.

Proof of sufficient German (DSH2) or English Skills (B2 GER; IELTS 5.0; TOEFL: Paper 500 or Computer 170 or Internet 80) for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German, which are necessary to understand courses and specialist literature.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

The master’s program in mathematics has a research orientation. Building on an initial degree, academic knowledge is deepened, and students acquire the ability to work on academic principles independently, learning to apply academic methods and findings. The master’s program offers students the possibility of deepening previously acquired knowledge in one of the following domains: analysis, discrete mathematics, algebraic/complex geometry, numerical mathematics, differential geometry, or topology.
