Entry into the Program

Entry into the Mathematics Special Studies Program is by invitation. Students should enrol in MATH1903. Once they are selected they will change their enrolment from MATH1903 to MATH1907. They attend the same lectures as MATH1903 students but have their own seminar and tutorial covering specially chosen advanced topics.

The topics for this semester can be found on the Unit Information Sheet.

If you have a distinction or higher in MATH1906 you are guaranteed a place. If that is the case you can enrol through Sydney Student after the release of Semester 1 results.

Other interested students please fill in the online application form before 3 August 2017 at 12pm or at the information meeting.

Selection into the Mathematics Special Studies Program is based on
