About this course

The Mathematics and Education specialisation consists of a one-year mathematically-oriented component (taught in English) and a one-year education-oriented component (taught in Dutch).

The mathematics component has a distinct dual focus on both analysis and number theory. Analysis is centred around two main research themes: computational science and dynamical systems, and probability. The education part of the programme is offered by the Leiden University Graduate School of Teaching (ICLON), and combines training in mathematics with training in didactics and education.

Entry Requirements

  • A BSc degree in Mathematics or a BSc major in Mathematics, obtained at a Dutch university. Students holding such a degree will directly be admitted to the programme.
  • For all other candidates, an Admission Committee will judge the equivalence of their previous training to this Bachelor of Science degree. The choice in optional courses in the Master of Science programme may be limited by the need to adapt the programme to the actual knowledge of the candidate. 
  • The admission process may include an interview by the Admissions Committee

Proof of sufficient proficiency in English

  • IELTS test level of at least 6.0 or TOEFL score of at least 550/213, evidenced by an appropriate test.
