In addition to the general qualifications required for admission to the Graduate School, applicants should have majored in Mathematics or related fields. Applicants may be required to attend an interview. Graduate Record Examination in Mathematics may also be required in some cases.
The MSc programme has been further strengthened recently. Among the new courses being added, there are two courses on Logistics and Operations Research. Old courses have also been redesigned with more individual attention components. More courses are offered specially for the MSc students to take care of their needs. For instance, Algebra and Geometry emphasizes the fascinating intertwining relationships, "Guided Studies I" bridges individual students background to the desired level while "Guided Studies II" helps bring the students to research topics of their choice. Flexible time-table arrangements (such as Saturday and evening classes) suit part-time students from the teaching profession and commerce-industry alike.
