The Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) is a joint graduate school of the mathematics departments of the three major Berlin universities, TU Berlin, FU Berlin, and HU Berlin. We offer

  • a uniform setting for graduate studies (from bachelor to PhD) in mathematics in Berlin,
  • a coordinated, highly diverse course program in English (Phase I, from bachelor to qualifying exams in two years),
  • German language skills are not necessary,
  • access to all math research groups in Berlin for a PhD (Phase II), in particular, to the DFG Research Training Groups (Graduiertenkollegs) and other ongoing research projects,
  • intensive mentoring during the whole duration of studies, and
  • support in non mathematical issues ranging from housing to visas and from child care to language courses.

The BMS offers scholarships, both for Phase I and for Phase II students, funded by the German Science Foundation DFG in the framework of the "Excellence Initiative" and by the three Berlin universities. The application for a scholarship can be included in the application for admission, there is a special section - no extra application materials are needed.

Phase I scholarships

Typical Phase I scholarships are granted for 18 months (extendible by 6 months), and from January 2019 will amount to 1000 euros per month, tax-free (no insurances included).

Phase II scholarships

Phase II scholarships are typically granted for 24 months (extendible by 12 months), and usually amount to about 1468 euros per month, tax-free (no insurances included). There are extra child-care funds reserved for BMS students who take care of children.
