For new international students
The content of the course is decided by the supervisor after consultation with the student. The course intends to provide experience and knowledge in the scientific approach and scientific work in mathematics. The course work should be given a detailed description in a work plan that shall be approved by the supervisor.
Some of the courses listed under Eligibility are old courses that are no longer given. See More information below for a translation into current courses.
The course consists of one element, the project.

Translation of prerequisites
These are the current courses corresponding to those listed as prerequisites that have been replaced with new versions. If you have taken an older version of a course, that will still count towards eligibility.
- MM7001: MM5021 Mathematics III - Foundations of Analysis
- MM7002: MM5022 Mathematics III - Complex Analysis
- MM7003: MM5020 Mathematics III - Abstract Algebra
- MM7007: MM5023 Mathematics III - Combinatorics
- MM8019: MM7042 Commutative algebra and algebraic geometry
- MM8002: MM7041 Topology
As for the requirement to have one of MM8001, MM8003, MM8008 or MM8009, this can also be fulfilled by MM7046 Advanced Real Analysis I (or the older version of the same course, which had course code MM8037).
