Bonn International Graduate School of Mathematics

The University of Bonn is known for its excellent teaching and research record in mathematics.  National rankings recommend Bonn as the best place in Germany to study mathematics.

Many talented young people come to Bonn to study mathematics for a bachelor, master or a PhD degree. It is the place of choice for winners of mathematics competitions or for students supported by the prestigious "Studienstiftung", which awards scholarhips to less than one per cent of the best students at German universities. — No other department in Germany attracts as many students from this group.

For PhD students, education through research at the highest level is the driving force of our efforts. Lecture courses at a high academic level, seminars on advanced level, guest lecturers from all over the world, summer and winter schools, and workshops on recent developments, create a challenging scientific atmosphere.


If you are interested in applying for admission to the Ph.D. or Pre-Ph.D. program of the Bonn International Graduate School of Mathematics we kindly ask you to read carefully the following information about the required documents. 

The next deadline will be 15 May 2019 for admission in October 2019. The application page will open in early March. The next deadline after that will be 15 December 2019 for admission in May or October 2020.
