The Master of Mathematics (Leuven) programme offers you the possibility to focus on either pure or applied mathematics. This allows you to gain experience and autonomy in learning how to cope with new concepts, higher levels of abstraction, new techniques, and new applications. This culminates in the master’s thesis, where you become actively involved in the research performed in one of the mathematical research groups of the Departments of Mathematics, Physics, and Astronomy and Computer Science.


  • The academic staff at the Department of Mathematics consists of leading experts in their field, and share their global network of researchers and employers. 
  • You will benefit from the diverse experience of the international faculty staff, and from the multinational student base.
  •  You will be equipped with a powerful tool kit from which to tackle and solve problems facing mathematics, from an academic, work based, and research based perspective.

Mathematicians are in high demand across the work field. As a graduate mathematician, you can find employment in industry and in the banking, insurance, and IT sectors. There are also openings in academic institutions, government agencies and think tanks, private companies, research centres and industrial companies and departments.   Many graduates who choose the research option pursue a career in research and start their PhD in mathematics, mathematical physics, astrophysics, engineering, or related fields.
