Advanced Mathematics

Recommended applicant profile

Ideally, applicants to this master's degree should hold a bachelor's degree in mathematics or an equivalent qualification, as well as possessing a strong academic record and a particular interest in pursuing a career in university research or affiliated to a research centre, or a career in business or public administration, in sectors that require specialists with a high level of training in mathematics (finance, biomedicine, information and communication technologies, etc.). At the master's degree level, we do not think it necessary to distinguish between these two possible career paths, as the lines that divide them are becoming increasingly blurred and will only continue to do so in the future.

Since the degree is taught in English, applicants should also possess a sufficient level of comprehension to be able to follow the course in this language.

Admission requirements

In accordance with Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, students wishing to be admitted to a university master's degree must hold one of the following qualifications:

  • Official Spanish university degree.
  • A degree issued by a higher education institution within the European Higher Education Area framework that authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue.
  • A qualification issued by an institution outside the framework of the European Higher Education Area. In this case, applicants must request homologation of the degree to its equivalent official Spanish university qualification or obtain express approval from the University of Barcelona, which will conduct a study of equivalence to ensure that the degree is of a comparable level to an official Spanish university qualification and that it grants access to university master's degree study in the country of issue. Admission shall not, in any case, imply that prior qualifications have been recognized as equivalent to a Spanish master's degree and does not confer recognition for any purposes other than that of admission to the master's degree course.

Specific requirements

This course is open to all those in possession of a bachelor's degree in mathematics or an equivalent official degree qualification.
Applicants with a degree in physics, engineering, economics or other similar disciplines, or an officially recognized equivalent degree, granted by an EHEA university, or students with a bachelor's degree in mathematics or any of the other abovementioned disciplines, or with an equivalent degree, granted by a university not belonging to the EHEA may be admitted with approval from the Coordination Committee. The committee will evaluate the students' potential to assimilate the content of the master's program based on their previous studies and will decide, if deemed necessary, to require these students to take bridging courses up to a maximum of 30 credits within the subjects offered in the bachelor's degree in Mathematics as taught by the UB's Faculty of Mathematics.
