Berlin Mathematical School (BMS)
The Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) was founded in the summer of 2006 and has started its course programme in October 2006.
The BMS is a joint project of the mathematics departments of the three major Berlin universities, TU Berlin, FU Berlin, and HU Berlin.
It offers a uniform setting for graduate studies in mathematics in Berlin:
- a coordinated, highly diverse course program in English (Phase I, from bachelor to qualifying exams)
- access to all math research groups in Berlin for a PhD (Phase II), in particular to the DFG Research Training Groups (Graduiertenkollegs) and other ongoing research projects
- intensive mentoring during the whole duration of studies
- support in non mathematical issues ranging from housing to visas and from child care to language courses.
BMS invites excellent mathematics students from Berlin, Germany, Europe and all over the world to join it - and to make good use of the ample opportunities offered by the rich and diverse mathematics teaching and research environment.
Depending on the individual background, admission is to Phase I (typically with a bachelor) or directly to Phase II (for students holding a master/diploma).
Besides striving for excellence, BMS is actively pursuing the goals of internationality, gender equality and diversity. The city of Berlin with its tradition of multicultural openness, its good relations to the East and the West and its rich cultural and academic life provides an excellent setting for this.
