The programme includes a mandatory Master’s thesis. Your Master’s thesis will focus either on a current research problem in mathematics or statistics, or on a classical theory on the field. In your thesis you will demonstrate your ability to think scientifically, your command of research techniques, your familiarity with the subject of study, and your aptitude for written scientific communication.

You will have a supervisor appointed to oversee your thesis. You and your supervisor will have regular meetings to ensure that your work is progressing smoothly and on schedule. The thesis is worth 30 credits, roughly corresponding to one semester of full-time studies.
