About Mathematics at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Discover a versatile field with unexpected applications

Did you know that modern cryptography uses prime numbers, or that bacterial growth is governed by differential equations? Or that the spread of forest fires and infections can be predicted by stochastic models? How about the discovery of gravitational waves, which confirms Einstein's prediction that spacetime is described by Riemannian geometry?

If you join the Mathematics programme, you can learn about both the fundamental aspects of mathematics and its applications. At Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam we develop fundamental mathematical theory in algebra, geometry, number theory, analysis, dynamical systems, probability, statistics and operations research. But we also apply this theory in areas as business analytics, data science, forensic statistics, systems biology, neuroscience, complex systems and many more.

Entry requirements

The Mathematics programme is open to both Dutch and International Students. The Faculty's Admission Board will decide upon your admission after having evaluated your complete online application.

In order to gain admission to the Mathematics Master's programme, you will need to have at least a Bachelor's degree from an accredited research university including at least three full years of academic study amounting to a minimum of 180 ECTS or equivalent. We do not require a GRE or GMAT test score. A Bachelor degree obtained at an applied university or higher vocational education (HBO in Dutch) in most cases does not grant direct access to the programme (only exceptionally high ranking students stand a chance of admission).

General English language proficiency requirements

VU Amsterdam requires all applicants to take an English test. You can, however, begin your application without having the test results. Exceptions are made for students who have completed a bachelor or master in Canada, USA, UK, Ireland, New Zealand or Australia.

The minimum English language proficiency requirements for admission to this master programme are:

  • IELTS: 6.5 overall
  • TOEFL Internet-based test: 92 overall
  • Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE): A, B, C
  • Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE): A, B, C
