The Mathematics Master programme offers courses in the following specialisations:

- Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory (including Erasmus Mundus Algant)
- Applied Mathematics
- Statistical Science for Life and Behavioural Sciences
- Mathematics and Communication
- Mathematics and Education
- Mathematics and Science-Based Business

Each specialisation offers courses at an advanced level, leading eventually to an individual research project and a Master’s thesis. Some of the courses (at least 30 EC) are to be taken at a national level, via the Dutch national mastermath programme. The length of each specialisation is two years. Students from any university in the Netherlands with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics or with a Bachelor of Science Degree with major in Mathematics are admitted to the programme. For all other students, an Admission Committee will consider the possibility of enrolling.
