About Mathematics at Aarhus University

Mathematics is a part of day-to-day life - of using your debit card and navigating by GPS, just as much as making calculations in physics or chemistry or working out the pot odds in an important hand of poker.

RESEARCH AND SPECIALISATION

Teaching at the university is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. When students write their MSc thesis during the final year of the programme, they have excellent opportunities to become affiliated with a group of researchers, which allows them to participate in the group's research projects and scientific discussions. Students specialise in a subject within a broad area, including one of the three areas of mathematics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: algebra, analysis, and geometry and topology.

STUDENT LIFE

As a student in the programme, you are based at the Department of Mathematics, which has its own canteen, computer rooms, library, and study areas shared by students. As a master's student, you will be given your own desk in an office shared with other master's students. The department also has a number of student organisations such as Euler's Friends (Eulers Venner) and the Kalkulerbar (Friday bar) organising lectures on current maths topics, study excursions, and social functions.

CAREERS

Graduates from the Department of Mathematics find work across a wide range of fields and institutions including finance, communication, and the wind-power industry in the private sector. Typically, previous graduates are working in universities and research institutions, in the pharmaceutical industry, the telecommunications and finance sectors, and in insurance companies.

Graduates who pursue academic careers at universities are often involved in interdisciplinary work with doctors, biologists or chemists, analysing large amounts of data, or teaching statistics to these professional groups. In the pharmaceutical industry, graduates plan clinical trials or design methods for examining whether new drugs have unwanted side effects. In the insurance industry, graduates typically work as actuaries and may contribute to working out tariffs. Common to all these jobs is the requirement for knowledge of a number of complicated mathematical models - something the MSc in Mathematics will equip you with.

What students think about Aarhus University

    Sagar from India studying Mechanical Engineering

    Testimonial from Sagar from India studying Mechanical Engineering, student at Aarhus University

    "It's very easy to work in English in Denmark. Everyone understands it and can talk in English. I also think that the culture is very interesting. Quite unique in fact. There’s a lot of focus on the potential of the individual, and there’s a lot of openness. Denmark has a very flat hierarchy, and that’s rare. I've never experienced this flat hierarchy before, so actually it was something of a culture shock. And it permeates everything – even on the programme. It's very positive, it's not like the lecturer just arrives, teaches, and goes. There’s interaction, and you’re encouraged to discuss and have an opinion. The professors are genuinely interested in hearing your own opinion about things; even the simplest questions are given respect and are discussed until every aspect is clear to us.”

    Anita from Croatia studying Civil and Architectural Engineering

    Testimonial from Anita from Croatia studying Civil and Architectural Engineering, student at Aarhus University

    "It was weird to live here at first. You had to get used to so many new things. But there were a lot of social events, especially during the first week, and everything was organised for us. I met a lot of Danish and international students, and even some from my own country. It was great, and it helped in the beginning, when you feel that you’re completely alone with so many things. I like Aarhus. It's a big city, but it’s also a small town. It’s exactly the right size, I think, to feel at home and comfortable and yet to have all the opportunities you need and want. And I really like the fact that the university is right in the middle of the city."

    Angelo from Italy studying Computer Science

    Testimonial from Angelo from Italy studying Computer Science, student at Aarhus University

    "What really makes Aarhus University unique is the study environment. The lecturers are very open to discuss their subjects during lectures, but they are also available at other times - sometimes you can discuss with them during the local Friday Bar. Most of the programmes facilitate and foster teamwork, which is so much more fun and closer to the actual working environments. Last, but not least important, you have 24/7 access to facilities, including libraries, study rooms, etc., if you want to go the extra mile."
