2014-15 AIMS Masters Programme – Full Scholarships for Africans

2014-15 AIMS Masters Programme – Full Scholarships for Africans

Deadline: March 23, 2014

The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Next Einstein Initiative is accepting applications for the 2014-15 AIMS Masters Course. The AIMS taught programme is not a typical university programme.  Taught by top international and local lecturers, the course is supported throughout by tutors who work closely with the lecturers and students. The course material is purposefully broad, allowing students to learn about a wide spectrum of mathematical topics and their applications before focusing on a single area for their research project.

They look for the most talented and motivated students from across the African continent, recognising that grades are not always a good indication of potential. AIMS provides scholarships to all students, ensuring that an inability to pay is not a barrier to enrolling on the AIMS course.

For the 2014-15 academic year, AIMS will offer courses at AIMS-South Africa, AIMS-Senegal, AIMS-Ghana, AIMS-Cameroon and AIMS-Tanzania (to be confirmed). To stand the best chance of acceptance, students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
