About

This broad and challenging Bachelor’s degree programme in Mathematics from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam lasts 3 years and is aimed at students who love logical thinking, and are not afraid of abstraction or complex calculations.

Overview

The Mathematics programme from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam provides unparalleled possibilities for specialising in both pure and applied mathematics, and gives you a head start for a career in research, industry, education or consultancy. 

Whether you’re driven by pure curiosity in mathematical structures or by modern applications of these, at Free University Amsterdam you will discover the beauty of mathematics. Mathematics is everywhere. You can learn for example about distribution of prime numbers and geometry of graphs, as well as applications of these in cryptography and big data.

The lecturers are world-leading researchers that use innovative teaching methods. Lectures are accompanied by tutorial classes, in which you receive personal feedback from your tutors. The study counsellors will make sure that you choose the study path that suits you best.

The VU campus is located in one of the most dynamic and fast-growing business districts in the Netherlands and just a 10-minute train ride from the international airport Schiphol. The lively and multicultural city centre of Amsterdam, with the largest concentration of students in the Netherlands, is just a 15-minute bike ride from the campus.

Career Prospects

Joblessness is rare among mathematicians: they find jobs in technology companies, banks, ministries, hospitals, consultancy, IT, scientific research and education. Your knowledge of fundamental and applied mathematics as a VU mathematician will suit you for a range of jobs, and most companies and institutions are highly interested in the general analytical and problem-solving skills you will develop. As a consequence, mathematicians end up in an enormous diversity of jobs.
