The AIMS Master’s in Mathematical Sciences is a ten month programme with two intakes each year (January and August). The curriculum runs over 3 semesters described below. There is an oral defense of the research project at the end of the academic year followed by a graduation ceremony.

Applications are open for South African and SADC students ONLY and the rest of the Pan African students can apply on 1 December.

 The purpose of the research project is:

  1. to give students the opportunity to work with an expert supervisor on a research project;
  2. to go through the process of independently reviewing, understanding and explaining scientific or mathematical material;
  3. to optionally do experiments — on a computer or otherwise — and report the results;
  4. to write a scientific report.

Preference will be given to South African nationals.  Applicants should hold, or anticipate completing by the start date of the AIMS course, a 4-year university degree in mathematics, or any science or engineering subject with a significant mathematics component.
