Admission for Graduate School of Mathematics

International Programs of Graduate School of Mathematics

The screening of these programs for admission in 2018 has begun.

Graduate School of Mathematics at Kyushu University offers two international programs for international students. All the lectures, thesis work and guidance will be carried out in English. The programs have started on October 1, 2010.

The School has more than seventy academic staff members covering a broad range of mathematics and related areas, and is one of the hubs of mathematics education and research in Japan. For more details, refer to our Staff List * and Education & Research Map. The school has a long tradition of impressive achievements in the education and research of both applied and pure mathematics. A further characteristic of the school is its advanced level of research that includes collaborations and exchange with private industry, supplemented by fundamental teaching through almost a dozen regular open research seminars, colloquiums, and various intensive lectures.

A wide range of lectures will be delivered, with topics ranging from pure mathematics such as algebra and geometry, to applied mathematics such as probability, statistics, and computational mathematics. For more details, refer to the list of lectures below. In addition, abundant resources to support study and research activities are made available to students, such as books and on-line journals through the University Library (one of the most prominent libraries in Japan), high-performance computers and a high-speed network, and various kinds of software such as computer algebra. In this manner, study and research activities in this program are fully geared towards supporting students of all backgrounds and interests.
